Video highlights fire's fury


Footage submitted by local businessman Ron Iudice shows the heat and fury of the 5/11 blaze from a vantage point on 5th Street.

Using phones, portable devices and professional video cameras, locals and journalists collected many views of Friday's blaze.

Shot from below the action, Iudice's video is perhaps the best to emerge so far. The images show the fire's heat and intensity. Showers of sparks are seen streaming into the sky. Trees on the street wag in firestorm-generated breezes.

Iudice said he felt the fire's radient energy as he used his HD Flip camera to record it.

Upon hearing of the disaster, he raced to the scene with the camera while wearing his pajamas, he said.
