The Emmitt House was destroyed on January 6.

New video shows law enforcement officers inside the building being warned by the Waverly Fire Chief to evacuate.

As they leave, the video shows the second floor collapsing. Officials say it shows just how close this fire came to injuring first responders.

The fire was apparently involved for more than 30 minutes before it was discovered.
