VIDEO: Harrisburg city’s fire department has released video from a firefighter’s helmet camera that shows the rescue of a North 15th Street resident from his burning home shortly after first crews arrived. Chief Brian Enterline said the man was seen by firefighters at a second-floor, bedroom window in the 1400 block of North 15th as they were making initial exterior checks of the structure. The man, who has not been named, was successfully pulled out by responding firefighters, and received treatment for smoke inhalation at Holy Spirit Hospital. Enterline said he was in good condition as of Sunday night. Unfortunately, another resident in the residence died in the blaze, which was dispatched at 4:15 p.m. Sunday. Enterline said the city and Dauphin County Coroner’s office expect to release more information on the victim and what investigators have learned about the blaze on Tuesday. As of Monday night, however, he could confirm that the fire was accidental in nature.
