DALWORTHINGTON GARDENS - Jeff Woolsey is a cross-trained police/firefighter for the city of Dalworthington Gardens. He was one of a group of D/FW firefighters who were deployed over the last week to a 40,000-acre wildfire in East Texas, near the City of Linden.

Members of Strike Force 413 took video of the fire on an iPhone as the blaze shot flames 150 feet in the air and threatened seven homes.

Woolsey shared the video with News 8, as well as his thoughts on the most treacherous fire he's ever seen.
