Body Camera Catches Playground Fire in Ohio


Firefighters are beginning to use a tool that is now in widespread use among police departments.

The police body cam is being adopted by fire departments.

A firefighter in Bellaire, Ohio was wearing a camera on his helmet Friday night when he started spraying water on a playground fire.

The fire itself was small, but it was big enough to destroy the town’s only only playground designed for smaller children.

Arson is expected and that’s where the helmet cam comes in.

Fire investigators will use videos like these to help them analyze fires to see if there are patterns that can help them pinpoint where the fire started or any other clues that will solve arson cases.
