is hoped that this information will assist in reducing your
losses and help speed your return to a normal lifestyle.
First, we would like to answer some questions you might have
about our fire operations and procedures.
1. Was it really necessary to break the windows and put
holes in the roof?
As a fire burns, it moves upward, then outward. Removing windows
and cutting holes in the roof, ventilation in firefighting
terms, stops that damaging outward movement of smoke and heat
and enables us to locate potential victims, and fight the
fire more efficiently, resulting in less damage in the long
run. This procedure also reduces the risk of serious injury
2. Why did the firefighters put holes in the walls
They had to be absolutely sure there was no "hidden"
fire inside the walls, ceilings and partitions.
