Firefighters Feel The Heat

We stopped by station five at the Greenville fire and rescue and spoke with a firefighter trying to beat the heat. Eric Deans, says he's having a tough time staying cool in this heatwave. His equipment alone weighs about forty to fifty pounds and he says that coupled with the soaring temperatures outside could make for a dangerous situation. Deans says he and his fellow firefighters, take frequent breaks and drink plenty of fluids to battle the heat.
