    What is a smoke sucker?

    • yeoldesnake says:

      This is a special turbine which removes smoke from the premise the fire-fighters are about to enter – to improve visibility and help breathing the people which might be still inside. The most dangerous factor of any fire is not the flame itself but smoke – people easily get disoriented inside of a building and die from choke or poisoning by gas products of combustion.
