    Ok – were they attacking that fire from the other side of the house – or were there firefighters inside the house? All I saw were guys walking around the house, equipment being moved, a guy getting hooked up to his air pack…and a continual stream of smoke coming from – first – one window, then a second. Were they waiting for electric to be cut – but they could do that at the pole, right? Just didn’t look very dynamic. I’m not criticizing. I respect the job they do…just asking. How were they suppressing the fire?
