Firefighters in danger after backdraft explosion

October 5, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
The cause of a fire that almost cost three firefighters their lives in Ohio remains under investigation.

A backdraft explosion was caught on video just moments after the trio went inside a burning restaurant.

Luckily, they all made it out okay. None of the onlookers were hurt either, but the historic building is a total loss.

The restaurant dated back to the 1930s and was filled with irreplaceable memorabilia.
