Home Security Cameras in the Gloucestershire Area
A home security system allowed a devastated Canadian resident to watch on his smartphone, as one of the worst forest fires in Canadian history tore its way through his home.
Home security cameras in the Gloucestershire area would luckily never have the opportunity to film such a natural disaster. But in certain parts of the world forest fires are a very real danger. Fort McMurray resident James O’Reilly watched on his smartphone as the cameras captured the horrific moments before the almighty blaze began to devour all his worldly possessions. The video clip begins with a peaceful shot, of a cosy looking living room, with the fire rumbling just feet away outside the window. There follows 5 minutes of eerie and disturbing footage as the fire moves ever closer, the smoke alarms begin to sound and there is a warning to evacuate, before a thick, black smog descends into the shot and the fire begins to engulf the property.
The Fort McMurray wildfires have dominated the news this week and people across the world have watched aghast at the horrendous scenes, as whole towns and communities have been wiped out by the raging flames. We all have tremendous sympathy for the poor residents of Fort McMurray, as they are powerless to stop the fires from destroying their homes and all their worldly possessions. As news reporters interview the victims of this cruel disaster, it is clear to see the severe emotional consequences that will haunt those poor people for years to come.
The one truly amazing ray of light among the ruin, is that so far, there has not been a single casualty of life caused by these fires. This is a testament to the bravery and professionalism of the Canadian fire service and the efficiency of the evacuation procedures.
Here in Gloucestershire, we are lucky enough not to have to worry about the dangers of wildfires. But the footage shown by the home security system, shows very clearly the terrible destruction fire can cause.
