    Can’t get much more aggressive than that! Hop off the rig, pull the preconnect, go right to the fire and then ask for water. I guess you know you have confidence in your engineer when you can do that.

    john wayne’d that one didn’t he?

    nice push for a quick knock, but where is your buddy? no 2 in?

    and on a house that small, no reason to go in uncharged.

    Did I miss something, or did the 1st-due take their line through the back, and he opposed them from the front?

      That’s what it says in the text. I got burned once, in the days before hoods, when a line through a window pushed fire over my partner and me. It was simple blister burns on my neck and ears, but painful, nonetheless. I don’t like opposing lines!

        By the way, I was up close and personal on that fire. I’m here to tell you that an improperly applied wide fog WILL push fire! It rolled right over the top of us.

    Fire 21 I know the feeling that happened to me too numerious times. Everyone has to pay attention what the other crew or company is doing. Quick action on this fire.

    17 Engine should not of gone around back. They handed that fire to 7 Engine on a silver platter. Nice quick work by the crew of 7 Engine.
