WE RESPONDED TO A CALL FOR SMOKE IN THE AREA ON COLORADO ST IN A HEAVILY OCCUPIED NEIGHBORHOOD AROUND 1230. WE ARRIVED TO FIND HEAVY FIRE SHOWING ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF A VACANT DWELLING. WE ARE SHORT HANDED THIS DAY, AND ARE WORKING WITH 3 FIREFIGHTERS, AND 2 DRIVERS (BOTH BEING SERGEANT'S). WE ATTEMPTED TO GET THE FRONT DOOR OPEN BUT FAILED, WHICH IS WHY WE WENT THROUGH THE FRONT WINDOW. WE WENT IN INITIALLY ON TANK WATER, BUT A WATER SUPPLY WAS QUICKLY ESTABLISHED. WE HAD A SMALL PROBLEM WITH WATER PRESSURE FOR A FEW MOMENTS. THE FIRE CONSUMED ALL OF THE FRONT ROOM AND EXTENDED INTO ANOTHER LARGE ROOM TO THE RIGHT, AS WELL AS MINOR EXTENSION ON THE SECOND FLOOR. NO FIRE WAS FOUND IN THE ATTIC. OUR INITIAL HOSE LAYOUT WAS A BIT MESSY, BUT ID SAY THAT WAS OUR ONLY HICUP. ONCE THE CHIEF ARRIVED ON SCENE THE OIC TURNED OVER COMMAND AND TOOK OVER PUMP OPPS FREEING UP THE OTHER Sgt TO BRING IN A SECOND LINE. QUICK WORK ON A DECENT FIRE, EVERYONE WENT HOME WITHOUT INJURY. - Go To YouTube
