Video from firelensman of a house fire on Tuesday in Los Angeles, California. Here's some of what he posted with the video:

It took Los Angeles Firefighters close to 40 minutes to knock down a blaze that destroyed the attic of a one and two story house on the 2200 block of Virginia Road in the Mid-City / Lafayette Park district of L.A. Firefighters first on scene had smoke showing from the attic of the house and ventilated the roof. Firefighters also went to work protecting exposures, extinguishing the flames with several handlines.

    Typical LA lots guys on roof of a place thats already vented. Even more guys walking back and forth doing nothing. Lets get a line in there and see sum steam.

      Agree.  Chainsaws don't put out fires.  Maybe they just like looking down at it burning.

    I was wondering if the car port would have supported a hose team to introduce water through the gable into the attic space?

      Never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever spray water into a gable vent with guys inside. Never. That how you cause ceiling collapse and steam burns on your people. If it was a defensive posture, then ok.

    I haven't really ever seen any videos of LAFD where I was impressed.  This video doesn't change my opinion.  These guys look like there is no organization and are walking around aimlessly.

    Outstanding job as always by LAFD. Sound tactics, adequate staffing, and good command and control on the fireground.
