I caught this one just before I went to bed last night. I got in pretty early. They had a very heavy fire condition in two stores as well as in the cockloft over 3 additional stores. Several large holes were cut in the roof, multiple lines were stretched and in operation very fast and companies did a great job in stopping the fire from entering the additional exposures.
