    Would you call that a collapse, or someone pulling ceiling on top of your head?
    Glad all are ok.

    Looked like a combination of both...at the end I was watching that ceiling fan move with every pull on the ceiling....

    I'd like to hear more about this fire...

    Was there some sort of explosion that caused the fire?

    Are there units operating in the rear of the structure or just that single handline going in the front door?

    Reported entrapment?

    I'll reserve other comments, until more info is posted.

    No explosion. The fire had started in the garage totally destroying it and had progressed into the roof area upon our arrival. the garage had been knocked prior to our arrival (we were mutual aid from a ways away). No known entrapment was during day but I believe a primary had already been done prior to our arrival. We were sent in to try and get under the fire and stop it. Interior conditions were well as you can see in the video very low heat and good visibility. I was the one outside the room relaying commands as the bc inside the room was having trouble with his radio plus there was enough help in the room. As you can see the room was right next to the garage that was destroyed and as you can see some of the ceiling roof as well. One of the guys had just found a good spot to get up to the fire and we were calling for an attic ladder to get up in the hole to put it out when the ceiling collapse/pulling down happened. I saw it and began yelling watch it as I could see the whole ceiling begin to move. Stop it would have been a better word I am sure but neither would have likely stopped it from happening.

    Lines: we had the one with us and there was one into the basement also. As well as one on the roof (its the one you see hit us in the video) which we were trying to get stopped as we were inside. Also several lines outside.

    All comments suggestions welcome I was just asked to promote our website but I don't mind discussion either. We learn from others experience and knowledge and I love to learn and critic.

    Also luckily no one was hurt.
