A Fort Worth firefighter using a thermal imaging camera found a man inside a burning mobile home Sunday.

Engine 29 arrived in the 1800 block of Edgecliff Road at 4:06 p.m. and reported heavy smoke coming from the structure.

Fort Worth Firefighter Kurt Howard was using the thermal imaging camera to search the home when he located an unconscious male, according to Battalion Chief Richard Harrison.

Crews from Engine 17 and Quint 17 rescued the unconscious and unresponsive man from the structure and passed him to Engine 10’s crews, who began resuscitation efforts.

Harrison said the crew revived the man at the scene. He was breathing and regained consciousness before MedStar transported him to JPS Hospital.
