“For me, time felt like time slowed down and you could see the fire dancing around before getting extinguished. But exiting the structure I felt victorious, it was an awesome feeling; literally like a kid in a candy store,” said Tech. Sgt. Kristopher Jaime, the 354th Civil Engineer Squadron fire emergency services assistant chief of operations while describing, first-hand, the first fire he ever faced.
