    The write-up sounds like they did a good job. Can’t tell much from the video.

    I’ll tell ya Fire21, I served with these guys back in the late 80’s and they were a darn good crew back then. This same structure burned in 1987 and is the uninvolved portion you briefly see in the video. The fire conditions were the same but it was welldigger boots cold (-10) and snowing/ice all around.
