Once again, a fire in these large Private dwelling extended to the exposures. In fear of sounding like a broken record the need for Tower Ladders and Large Caliber Streams in front of the building/s and also via a rear street to provide access the rear of the building/s is needed for advanced fire in these buildings. At times handlines just won't control the fire. Again after 50 years of firefighting and 30 years with the FDNY I have some idea of what must be done in advanced/self-vented fires. Hit it hard to reduce the fire, then if the building is safe enter it and complete extinguishment.
As I said before the Chicago Fire Department calls it "Resetting the Fire" or another way to say it is hit it from the outside for 30 seconds or a minute or two, reduce the fire and then perform an "aggressive interior attack", after evaluating the structural stability of the fire building/s.

Again, these Batt FFs have to be educated. Exp. 4 was NOT an alley. It was a similar detached. Anything less than 30 ft. is considered an exposure. If the Alley was Exp.4 then the fire communicated past #4 to 4A. Somone please write a chief's Aide manual and putt the communications manual as an appendix.
