Tactical Fire Problem – Commercial freight elevator

This week we have a problem in a commercial freight elevator.

1.) What type of building would you find a freight service elevator like this? What is the age and/or construction of the building?

2.) What are the ventilation considerations if this is in the basement or lower level?

3.) Is the fire contained to the car or is smoke spreading from somewhere else, depending upon floor it is located on?

4.) What could the contents be?

5.) How do you make entry and/or operate, or secure this car?
