Odd…it almost looks like a North American fireground.
The video is new, but the incident is actually from 2011. Take a look and see what you think. Take away the funny rigs, hoseline and language and it looks almost like a fireground from here. More photos are here from FirePhoto.se
See? Barman forcing entry, Lineman bleeding off the line, cops standing around, EMS crews doing the same (I wonder if they have as much angst toward the fire service as here in the states), someone pulling a fan to Side Alpha.
I wonder why we dislike them and other Europeans so much.
