  1. 2.5 blitz the garage 1.75 in the front door hold off fire spread at door leading to garage. pull ceiling in kitchen or room closest to garage. If tall florida style ceilings stand on counters to pull ceilings. A fan could be used safely if fire has not spread to attick, it will help keep products of combustion in the garage and out of the rest of the house.

  2. Lt. McCormack has a good training video on fireengineering.net in the training minutes on this topic. Contrary to popular belief the first line(1 3/4″) needs to go in the front door and go directly to the interior garage door to prevent extension in the house. Do not attack the fire with this line. This line is for protection purposes only. The second line(2 1/2″) is going to be the attack line. Can access the garage via the overhead garage door or the exterior access door to the garage.
