"I'm not pulling a 2.5 on this one, but it's a maneuverability issue for the two firefighters I have available for the interior, not a water volume issue. I'd rather have 150 GPM going right on this fire than 250 GPM that we might not…"

"I don't like the looks of that smoke. It's very dark and acrid, and seems to be pushing hard from the picture. The fire load is growing, and fast. This sucker could flash at any moment."

Five Minutes in the Streets: "Heavy Smoke Showin.."

You've arrived on scene at a working structure fire in a single family residential occupancy. It's an early evening on a weekday, there are two cars in the driveway, no one has greeted you upon your arrival.
