It looks like the protective gear worn by firefighters works well enough so that the men in this video appear to barely know that they've got burning materials on their heads and shoulders.

But they kept their heads and those flames were quickly extinguished.

They catch fire about 3 minutes into this video.

According to a local TV station, the fire came during a demonstration of a sprinkler system in two mocked up dorm rooms outside Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. The sprinklers seem to work fine but flaming plastic materials fall on the firefighters, who are remain unfazed by the frames.

One of the firefighters was hospitalized.
