S4, E44 Operations at Cellar Fires with FDNY Lieutenant Tim Klett


With limited access, egress and ventilation fighting cellar fires is one of the most challenging scenarios firefighters face. Not knowing what you might encounter behind the cellar door makes the advance down the cellar steps difficult and dangerous. FDNY Engine Officer, Lt. Tim Klett of Engine 88, sits downs with Battalion Chief Brian Mulry to recount his experiences fighting a recent fire in a Bronx residential, wood frame dwelling where members were met with fire at the cellar door.
