You’re arriving first on whatever you usually ride (Engine, Truck, Rescue).

There is no one in the street to meet you and these are the conditions as you arrive. Water supply is readily available.

Identify what type of unit you are arriving on and what your initial actions will be.

    I was left patiently waiting for the deck gun to be used.

    I ride on a 3 man engine. Our policy is that the 2nd due establishes the water supply. Looking at the still picture, I believe I would knock it down with the 2.5in initially. and have the 1.75in mop up. Being first due on this and pulling the 2.5in sucks cause another engine is going to get to stretch into the structure. But I think that is the quickest way to put a knock on this fire, and protect that search for the truck.
