WATCH: Here's what it's like to be a firefighter battling a blazing fire (VIDEO)

This video gives you a firsthand look at a firefighters’ typical workday.

Shot with a helmet camera built to withstand high temperatures, the video shows two firefighters entering a home in Westchester, New York.

The two battle the bellowing blaze while dealing with falling power lines and communication problems.

Literally every inch of the home is engulfed in flames and smoke, reminding us that these brave men and women often have to walk straight into what seems like a certain death to contain the damage.

The last two minutes of the clip are also an unnerving glimpse into one of the most admirable skills of firefighters: Surveying an area that could collapse or explode at any moment while under total darkness.
