the FD's lack of action doesn't really prove anything. FD and EMS almost never are permitted to enter a hot zone for any reason, and are routinely told to hang back until granted clearance. if this was staged: they had to act like they would during any other active shooter scenario and not go rushing in to knock down a fire. if it wasn't staged: they were doing what they're trained to do, which is wait for police clearance to try and get in to knock down the fire. either way, that clearance is never granted until the fate of the shooter is sure and certain. sorry, the lack of FD involvement doesn't prove anything one way or the other.
