The dash-cam video was taken from different cars & obtained from different sources then clipped together so it appears this way. These are some brave public servants indeed...
YORBA LINDA -- A sequence of explosions near an electrical substation that injured two firefighters Sunday night was captured on a police dashboard camera. Two Brea police officers, in separate squad cars, were on Yorba Linda Boulevard when they saw an explosion up ahead. The officers discovered a smoking manhole and waited for county firefighters to arrive. In the video, a firefighter and a captain approach the manhole, which had already popped off, to take a peek inside With each explosion, a ball of fire shot up from the manhole. In all, there were at least eight explosions. The firefighters were treated at a hospital for first-degree burns and are expected to make a full recovery. The incident, which knocked out power to 3,385 Southern California Edison customers, occurred on Yorba Linda Boulevard near Fairmont Boulevard at about 8 p.m. Sunday. The explosions stopped when Edison staffers turned off all of the underground equipment. Authorities were doing an investigation into the cause.
