The Re-Inventors: Fire Fighting
As catastrophes like The Great Chicago Fire destroyed cities and claimed lives, the heat was on inventors in the 18th and 19th centuries to find safe and effective ways to fight fires. Matt and Jeremy uncover two old designs, a chemical pail and an exploding water bomb. See what happens when our hot shots crank up the heat on these two innovations to see if either idea actually works. It's all in the name of science, but our hosts are playing with fire, and if they're not careful, they just might get burned.
