That one needed the first line to be 2&1/2, and another 2&1/2 to the rear; use 1&3/4 for the exposures. No SCBA on the roof, not smart! I hope they struck at least 3 alarms, lot's of manpower needed there.

I may be out of line here, I'am sorry if i'am why would thay use such a small hose line when a couple of larger hose lines. would work a lot better then the small ones. Why did'nt they use ladder tucks as well. No fire fighter sould go any were whale a hose team is in place. No fire fighter sould be on a roof top with out SCBA. with that much smoke. call in extra compines to help that fire. I been a fire fighter for 8 months now so like said I may be out of line.

why in did they pull the 1 3/4 line on the initial attack? there is so much fire present with so many obvious exposures that it seems almost beyond reason that they would pull such a small line. I think all that they did was waste precious time not pulling a large enough 1st in attack line.
