Early video from john thompson of a multi-alarm fire last (Saturday) night in Walden, New York (Orange County). News coverage indicates the fire involved a Chinese restaurant on the ground floor and apartments above. Three firefighters reported to have been injured in the blaze.
FYI, Mr. Thompson is the same man whose drone was nearly drowned by firefighters who hit the UAV with a hose stream at a house fire. You can hear Thompson on this video saying that wished he had his drone for this fire.
