It's not. However Google has currently removed the street view images of the scene, but you can scroll around the neighborhood and see the thermal column and the LDH hose laid in.
It's in Arkansas.
eagle point dr, Gibson, Pulaski, Arkansas 72120
I don't know how to capture the picture and post it here. Oh, here we go:

At least it's right down the street from the Fire Department...
Must be a REAL small town to be able to reach a structure fire from the fire station with just a few hose lengths.

Possible, but not necessarily so. There are a few firehouses in my dept that have has fires next door, a few buildings down, or across the street. One house, Eng-8, had houses on both sides, a church the next lot over, a 3-frame across the street, and several houses on the block go up in flames over the years.
