Believe it or not, it technically wasn't fully involved...

    Since your not coming right off a hydrant, we would pull our 2" with a fog nozzle for the main house section, and a 2 1/2" with fog for garage, after water supply is established then get a couple 1 3/4 lines going.

      The only exposures would be internal ones -- mostly the rooms towards the B/C corner, and upstairs. Although by this point there was at least significant smoke & heat damage in those. Still nice to save what you can of a business papers or family heirlooms even if insurance will be replacing the rest.

        fully Involved?

        I would set up a surround and dround. Looks like it was fully involved. It looked like a double wide trailer fire we had. It was fully involved. The call came to dispatch at around 02:35. We seen it approx. a mile away. The flames were that high. That we could see it that far away.

          By two sides, we are judging a house as fully involved?
          Logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead.

            Start an Attack

            Ive seen that here. Not a rural area but a city, Two 1 3/4 lines would take care of that fire. With a plug at every corner, water supply is not an issue. With a fire like that, why go to the back and search for the fire. Hit it from the front and then get inside. The fire is well vented, and a good hard attack on the front should knock it down. 2-4 MIN'S tops and a crew should be inside, hitting hotspots. But every fire is different. You never know what is inside.

              Watcha running for tips & pressures 7160?

              2 1-3/4" lines running 15/16" smoothbores and being slightly over-pumped would've been close to the same flow rate used on the fire during the first 10 minutes

              I'd still prefer a 2.5" with an 1-1/8" or better to concentrate the flow a bit more early on though
