A Clark County (NV) firefighter recounted a near miss he experienced on a recent incident.

Veteran Firefighter Chris Grinder talked to News 3’s Christine Kim about his close call while he and fellow firefighters were responding to a fire that engulfed two big rig trailers.

“We had two semi-tractor trailers full of paper products and flames approximately 30 to 50 feet high, and another separate fire 100 or so feet away,” Grinder said. An explosion occured at the scene, knocking Grinder to the ground. The hose he was carrying was punctured by shrapnel from the blast.
