04/14/2004 Busy Busy BUSY DAY. Started Out With An Early Morning Video Shoot For The Weather Channel This Morning. Shot More Hot Weather Video For The Weather Channel This Afternoon. And Then... This Happened...
Ok, I got the SCOOP on this story and was able to get beyond the fire line to get right next to the fire fighters before the police shut the area down and locked it down to all the local media while I was still inside with the Fire Fighters. WCCO used this stuff as their opening shot and TWC is going nuts over the video since I was so freaking close to the fire.
Check out Shots 3 & 4, I was right under the Helicopter as it was dumping water on the fire and the water dump missed me by 100 feet.
Here is the video
