BRONSON –In the old days of firefighting, it was always very difficult to enter a smoke-filled structure trying to locate possible victims.
A lot of the time, someone couldn't be located until the fire was out and the smoke had cleared.
By that time, it can often be too late.
But modern technology now gives firefighters an added tool to find people in thick smoke conditions.
Thermal imaging cameras are indeed lifesavers.
"They locate victims quickly,"said Bronson Fire Chief Rick Lombardo.
