Method

Upon arrival the crew was met by heavy smoke throughout the store and the connected office premises. A cutting extinguisher was immediately deployed, through the security fences on the front of the store, for cooling the combustion gases. In parallel, another cobra operator started with a cutting extinguiser from the office area.

Summary

This effort with two simultaneous cobras was very effective and significantly delayed the progress of the fire - so much so that only the initial fire was left in a fuel controlled process. Now, firefighters with BA equipment, could be sent into safe environment to find and extinguish the initial fire area and open up the room to ventilate the cooled fire gases.
