    Call American Heat (if they still are around, may be under FETN now, http://www.twlk.com/fire/fetn_amheat.aspx ).

    Otherwise good luck, haven't been able to find it anywhere on the internet thus far.

    Is there actual video of the collapse? I am really stretching the wrinkles in my brain, and don't recall one.

    I know there is video of the events and a great one of the town manager defending budget cuts.

    Question

    Yes there is a video if I remember correctly. The video is shot at ground level and you see firefighters inside the garage type structure before it collapses. It was shown in some of my college classes.

    Have no idea where to find it though.

    bkdraft has a good point, call whoever runs the local Fire Science Program at the college or an academy or 240 instructor.

    If you don't already have it go to www.southbendfire.org and look under video gallery. Hope it helps.

    Thanks, i'm glad you found it.

    This will be shown at our next drill. I'm embaressed that I couldn't recall the footage, watching it again brought it all back.
