Pleasant Hill FD receives new thermal imaging camera

PLEASANT HILL, Ill. (WGEM) -

A local fire department is now better equipped to find people trapped inside burning buildings, thanks to a new thermal imaging camera.

The Pleasant Hill Fire Department received the new $9,500 camera earlier this month through grant money. 

With the new machine, Assistant Fire Chief Jody Coy says they'll be able to find the hottest spot of a fire and where to attack it, ultimately saving time, money and possibly someone's life.
