Pennsylvania house fire reminds us that we should always think of our area of refuge.
In 2003, a nozzle team was waiting for water during what appeared to be a routine house fire. As the delay grew, so did the fire. Unfortunately the nozzleman had advanced into the dwelling. While waiting for water he was enveloped in a flashover.
Video of this Pennsylvania house fire, courtesy of NewsWorking, shows the nozzle team being disciplined and not venturing further while the water problem is being worked out.
Where would your nozzle team have been?
