Looks like a good one…for the out of towners, that ISN’T a booster (aka red line) on the ground.

Nice to see a well coordinate attack on a half-story fire with two lines and also good photographs that document the incident and provide good material for future training. Hats off to Apex fire and the other companies at the fire.
