*After talking to the security chief, I call us responding and head outside to the rig.*
"Engine 12 to Fire, we will be clearing this call and taking the working fire in our district."
*I put my portable on the seat and climb into the rig, still dressed from the last call. I mark responding on the EAT as I wait for the guys.*

*I grab the tools we were using and assisted Jack in putting the high rise back on the engine. I climb up in the Engine and click my near empty SCBA into the seat and sit in a different one to get a new tank. I throw my radio holster on as we start rolling towards the scene.*

* As we relax for the drive tot he shopping center we get redispatched to a House Fire. I sit back up. *

' when it rains it pours i guess guys. '

" Fire....Truck-17 is responding. "

* Steve and Rob speed down Jassen towards Lincoln. Looking off to my left I can already see heavy black smoke when we are over 1 mile away at best. *

" Truck-17 to responding units, we have heavy smoke showing.... Truck-17 is 2 minutes out at this time. "

*As we come up Pacific Avenue from the mall fire, I see thick black smoke.*
'Yeah, no denying that's a fire.'
*I make sure that my gear is good. My air is at about 3/4 full, so I should be good to make a search or do some suppression work. I think back to the dispatch about the specifics of the house and make a game plan.*
'All right guys, I'm thinking that we have two teams of two, I'll take Jack, and Garret can go with Marcus. Garrett, you can catch us a hydrant while Marcus starts running the pump. Jack and I will get a line and we'll do suppression and start a search. Once y'all are set, the ladder should be onscene and you guys can get another line and continue the search. Remember, we have two trapped. Everybody good?'
*I adjust my air as I grab my helmet and finger the mic as we approach.*

* After a Short drive we make our right turn onto Spumoni. There is fire showing through the roof, the 2nd story windows are fully engulfed and fire has also started on the grass from embers. *

" Fire.....Truck-17 is on scene....All units e advised Heavy fire is showing out of the 2nd story windows, Fiure is also showing through the roof and extensions have been made to the outside grass area. Truck 17 is starting attack at this time. "

* Once we come to a stop I step out and get my coat and Helmet on. People around us come rushing up to us screaming there are still people inside. I continue to get my coat buttoned up before reaching inside to get my Air pack. *

' Damon, you and I will start searching, Steve, throw the stick up and start an attack on the fire in the 2nd story Dont touch the roof yet I dont want extra weight briniging it down its already compromised. Rob get the fire on the grass then help Steve. '

*I see the truck come around the corner from Lincoln as we converge on the house. I key the mic as we slow between the houses so we can get a hydrant.*
"Engine 12 is onscene, Fire."
*I clip the mic back as I grab my portable and get ready to start working.*

' Yea no worries Cap. '

* I unlatch my SCBA and step out of the truck. Quickly I walk over to the side USAR compartment, Fling it open and get a Halligan out before following the Captain to the front door. *

* We both Kneel down and mask up before prying the door Open. The Fire has already ran the ceiling, and is working its way throughout the entire lower floor. I look at Jay and give the kill sign, He shakes his head no and motions us to move forward. Against my better judgement I follow him in. Once inside the heat is insane, The fire is melting away portions of the paint, bubbling up the walls and has already started to eat through the supposed 4 hour burn time fire rated sheetrock. We continue immediatly to the stairs which are already looking bad with fire. Advancing forward Jaythen Moves items out of our way as we continue to fight our way to the 2nd floor. *

*I hop off the engine and catch the Hydrant in front of a neighboring house. As Marcus works the pump I go ahead and open the hydrant. I grab a set of metals off the Engine before I prepare myself to go in. There is a lot of chaos going on right now between people screaming, sirens, and radio traffic. I'm just trying to remember my assignment. I get a good seal on my mask, click in and turn around to see the Truck Co has already made entry. I don't feel right about entering that house it looks extremely unstable. I walk up to Capt Brondum as he steps off the Engine.*

'Cap Truck 17 just went in for a primary search. This house isn't looking too structurally sound. I don't have a good feeling about this. Do you still want us going as a secondary search team or do you want us with starting suppression?'

*While Waiting on a reply I can hear the interior team banging around inside.*

*I jump off of the rig as I see flames licking through the roof.*
'Ah, that ain't good.'
*I walk to the front of the rig as I hear Garrett ask me if I want to search or make entry. I see Marcus getting the pumps working and Jack getting ready to pull a 1 3/4 line off the engine. I figure that since the entire truck company is inside searching, it can't hurt to take suppression.*
'Yeah Garrett, take Marcus and a 1 3/4 and see if the truck needs you. If not, we can probably work on suppression. I head over with Jack as he pulls the preconnect.*
"12 to Truck 17, do you need an attack line with you on the primary search?"
*I head up to the door with Jack and drop to a knee as we mask up.*

* As Damon and I climb the stairs I hear the transmission from 12. *

" Engine-12 that's negative, try and suppress from the outside, we'll finish this search and get out, Can you get the stick to the 2nd story window and let me know which one its at. "

* I finally reach the top with Damon and I give him a signal to go check the 1st bedroom while I take the 2nd, there is fire everywhere. No wall or ceiling does not have fire. it is hard to see since it is so bright and smoky inside. I get to the 2nd story bedroom, the door is already burned away so I simply walk in and start a search h for a victim. *

"12 copies, truck 17. Your arial is on the middle window, 2nd floor of the alpha side. We're beginning defensive operations."
*I quickly run the numbers in my head. We'll have two of our engines and one volunteer engine. The truck is on the second floor working their way from the bravo side to the delta side. We can't open the deck gun because then we'll push the fire right at the truck. I see Jack bringing the 1 3/4 line to the back of the building so we won't be pushing the truck guys away from their exit poit of the arial. Once we get into a good position where we can hit both the Bravo and Charlie sides of the house without much movement. I see Jack get into a good position as I grab the mic.*
"12 Brondum to 12 engineer, charge line 1."
*I get into a good position to back up Jack and wait for the line to thicken.*

* As I pull up on scene I have been monitoring the radio traffic, I see 12 outside mounting an external attack. half of 17 is still inside and Engine 17 is not yet on scene. I do a very quick scene assesment before coming to a stop. *

" Fire....Division-17 is on scene assuming command. "

* I get out and grab my helmet and walk briskly over to Brondum. *

' Nick I know what Jaythen said and I dont care. That builing is coming down anytime now. Charge a line, get your asses in there and give them some water. Once they are out, you guys get out too. DO NOT advance to the 2nd level though, stay just inside the door so u can bail quickly if you need to. Spray what you can and get out. '

' Ty, Brian, grab a 2 inch and get her charged once we are on scene, Rich, get them water. '

* We come screaming up the street and finally come to a stop next to the truck. *

" Engine-17 is on scene fire. "

* I get out, leaving my air pack behind as usual and grab my cover. Walking up to Sanchez I shake his hand calmly before asking what he needs us to do. *

*I nod as Sanchez walks over to 17. I squeeze Jack's shoulder and relay Sanchez's message. He nods as he shuts down the nozzle as we head for the front of the building. I drop to a knee as I put my helmet down in front of me. I pull my mask on, tighten it, pull my hood up, and replace my helmet. I make sure my seal is good and nod to Jack as we enter the building.*
"12 Brondum to Division 17, we're entering the building."
*Once Jack gets about five feet inside of the door, he opens the nozzle as we fight the fire which is escalating quickly. I try to get a good feel for the building to make sure we have a bit of advanced warrning should the building collapse.*

* The buildings floor is already dipping to my feet as I walk so I step it up quicker. I yell out ' Coronado Fire Department, Can you hear me. ' Nobody responds. I look desperatly around and see the bed burning , the Walls are starting to become even more engulfed. I get to my knees and look under the burning bed, nothing. I stand back up and start franticaly moving objects. I come upon a large safe. The door is cracked so i open it. Inside is a small child. she cringes as I look at her. but realizing who i am she jumps at me. I grab her and immediatly start making my way to the Window. The stick is waiting on the other bedroom window. *

' Shit. this cant be happening. '

" Command, 17 Cornelius. I am +1 I will make my way to the other bedroom, keep the stick where it is. "

* I look at the girl she is having a difficult time breathing. I take my mask off immediatly and give it to her. she struggles a bit but as I tighten the straps as tight as they will go she relaxes a bit knowing she is getting air. I open my turnout coat, tuck her inside and start walking towards the door and out to the next room. *

* As I leave the room and make my way to the next room I see Damon in there already escorting a woman out the window and onto the waiting ladder. I get up close to him and as the woman gets out I motion for him to do the same. Im coughing like crazy at this point since the smoke and fire is so heavy and my mask is on the little girl. the 1st victim is out and climbing down the ladder ever so slowly. Damon gets out and I unmask the girl and hand her to him. *

* I take a look back at the inside of the burning house knowing this is the closest I have ever been to death then quickly I climb out the window and start making my way down the ladder. The little girl still in Damon's arms reaches out for me. Damon stops about half way down and I take her back. All four of us make our way down and onto the ground before being led off to the triage area. As m walking to the examination area I Notice 12 is still inside. *

" Truck-17 is clear of building all accounted for. Engine-12 your clear to exit. "

*I hear the floor start to creek because of the truck guys. I mumble to myself to will them out of the building. I get ready to head out of the door, but I figure of the truck is at the window sill, then the area around the door is more stressed. When I hear that they are clear, I grab Jack as we make a hasty retreat from the building. I exit the building on my feet, even through I don't like to. When we get out, I click my regulator out and take my mask off. I pull my hood down and catch my breath as I put my helmet back on. As I regain my breathing, I walk over to Sanchez *

* As soon as Rich charges the line for us I quickly start an agressive attack on the grass fire. Walking toward it, spraying in a circular motion until it is quickly Put out. Walking up to it I start roughing up the grass with my foot and soaking in the water to the ground making sure nothing comes back up. *

" 17 Flynn to 17 Command Fire is out on the grass. "

" Engine-17 take up the west and north sides, Engine-12 take the south and east sides. suppress from the outside and assume a defensive stance. "
