3.) What does smoke color indicate?

4.) What size and how many hose lines are needed?

5.) What is the length of the stretch of the attack line? Take a look in your response district a buildings like this that are set back off the road or driveway. You might waste 1-2 lengths of hose just to make the front door. Look around your response area. Have a plan!
