Typically in these situations if we roll up to a house and it is 25% or more involved with fire we move on as an individual engine generally does not carry enough water to be effective, and we do not tie in to a hydrant under these conditions.
Typically we pick a house that looks defensible, keep fire off of it until the flame front passes and move on and repeat the process.

The weather conditions today have been a real gift.This is the first time since the fire started that we didn't have red flag warnings. I saw the fire start to lay low in the afternoon, which normally doesn't happen until late evening. I cautiously believe things are looking up

How are some houses completely leveled and yet others along the same path look completely fine? I don't get that.
Did they sprinkle blood on their doors?

Yes, they believe this was manmade.
In El Paso County in the last few weeks over 20+ fires have been intentionally started by an Arson (most were extinguished quickly) they have not yet captured and 3 more fires were started on the Western slope (north of Grand Junction) today by a similar means. This in conjunction with AlQaeda's command to do exactly this leads me to believe this is terrorism caused.
The beatle kills + climate + drought = perfect way to cause terror with little to know threat of capture.
