A first-hand look inside a house fire (Video)

WASHINGTON — Firefighters last week rushed into a house up in flames, rescuing two dogs trapped inside, and it was all caught on a helmet camera.

The Fairfax County Fire Department released the video Sunday, showing the flames and smoke as dozens of firefighters battle the blaze on Carrleigh Parkway in Springfield, Virginia July 19.

No one was home at the time, except for three dogs. After a neighbor called 911, more than 60 firefighters ended up responding to the two-alarm blaze. During the 30 minutes it took firefighters to bring the fire under control, two of the three dogs were brought out of the home alive. Only one survived.

The fire department says the home was a total loss. The fire started on a porch in the back of the house.
