Two firefighters were injured Saturday when a gas station canopy collapsed on them while continuing to burn.
A video, shot by veteran photographer Jason Asselin, captured the exact moment when one of the firefighters became trapped under the burning infrastructure in Iron Mountain, Michigan.
In the video published by KTTS News, Asselin is heard shouting, “Oh my God, oh my God … there’s a fireman down.”
Asselin told Detroit-based WXYZ he was shocked to witness the exact moment the facade came falling down.
“I thought I just filmed my worst fear,” he said. “It scared me bad!”
Fire officials tell KTTS two firefighters were injured in the blaze but that both first responders are doing okay.
KTTS reports the fire’s cause is unknown.
