Peruvian Firefighter Catches Fire as Paint Factory Bursts Into Flames

Firefighters from Villa MarΓ­a del Triunfo in the Lima Province, Peru went to deal with a fire in a paint factory, but while they were inside, the fumes burst into flames. Six firefighters suffered burns, one of them serious.

By looking at the video, it almost seems like they didn’t know how to respond to their own colleagues burning. They wore fireproof clothes, but their faces were unprotected. They probably shouldn’t have gone inside a burning paint factory in the first place, although it’s possible that somebody was trapped inside so they moved in to rescue them?

    1. You know, they look the part: nice rigs, good equipment, good pressure at the nozzle, but ya a paint factory with or so I presume no sprinklers. But, being a retired Lieutenant/Firefighter, and someone is trapped and we go in. I think they know what they were doing though…….

    1. I wish it was being taught as stop, drop, roll and cover your face. The flames as you can see were at the face level.

      I think that was a Chief trying to stomp out the flames. CHAOS= Chief Has Arrived On Scene!!!

  1. they are saying that it took them a long time to get to the site. some of the fire fighters had to take a taxi in order to get to the burning site. They also said that the owner of the factory has disappeared and is no where to be found, None of the fire fighters get paid to do what they do. They all are volunteers. some of the fire fighters also took long to get to the site because they were working in their regular jobs and had to ask permission to go ” fight the flames”

    regardless. there was alot of lack of coordination and planning.

      1. They have (or had) them over here too. Going back 15years I remember my old boss was a voluntary fireman. Roughly once a fortnight you would see him tearing through the factory when his pager went off. Sometimes I would imagine him tripping and faceplanting on the concrete as he runs past me at 100mph. He was a bit of a cock to be fair.

        1. Haha, I know the type. Yes, a few of my mates volunteered at different times over the years. I recall being in the pub and the pager did its thing causing instant mayhem. I wouldn’t have minded but the fire station was just round the corner !

  2. That’s why you have a well funded fire fighting force–it’s a well known public good that civilizations today require. But right wing reactionists over there and in the US want to scale back things so we end up with goons like this running around fighting fires and whatever else is required. We can’t have socialism after all!

  3. This doesn’t amaze me and my homecountry but currently, like the A.C.E., it’s fucked up from Humala and anything I see isn’t Democracy but Terrorism. When a revolution occurs in Lima, I’m joining not for myself but who I serve will save the nation from corruption disasters business to dissolution.

    1. Your country is doomed. ….leave everything and come to America. …..
      To fight another day……..good luck….
      You’ll have more rights being illegal. …. (I mean……on paper!!!!-……)

      1. Hey @rayf my apologize bro just spreading bad seed demon drama ,not to exceed..my fellow BG family-friendly assholes…haaa don’t worry about boozer he’s not a good guy.dont trust him ..you’ve been very warned….. lol …….love ya booz….

      2. LOL…@dr What the hell is wrong with you “boy” shave your face change those dirty undies go to church & get a job…lol It’s time I get my ass to Texas so we can hit the town & get some nice ladys to make them work for us! Hell I thought I was nuts.. LOL you take care now bro, don’t let that bitch get you down, I’ll open my first bottle for you bro!! πŸ˜‰

        1. When he goes to take his physical and drug test for his new job he can hand those undies over to save time on the lab work as they already contain a urine, fecal, semen and blood sample. πŸ™‚

  5. “They see me burnin’ , they hatin’…” πŸ˜†

    But seriously… that guy got lucky he didnt even burned his eyebrows… Im still wondering what was that other guy thinking when he went back inside in the middle of that blazing fire.

  6. Holy shit! Respect to these guys. They do such a dangerous job with little reward apart from saving lives which some might say is better than any ?350,000 weekly cheque some footballers earn… Again, some might not.

    These public servants haven’t lost their way like the police. It proves with power comes an insane belief you are better than everyone else and the firefighters are a pure example of how things SHOULD be done. Take note all you stinking pigs!!

  7. You know that it would be untrue, you know that I would be a liar, if I was to say to you girl We couldn’t get much higher, Come on baby LIGHT my FIRE, come on baby lets light the paint factory on fire, there aren’t enough flames, watch me become a human torch, come on baby LIGHT my FIREEEEEEE!

  8. The problem in Peru is that firefighters don’t even have the proper equipment to do their job…the clothes are too old, they don’t protect against fire or dangerous substances, their boots are broken and water gets inside…the vehicles are old too…sometimes they have to collect money to repair their stuff…it’s a terrible situation for them indeed
