Another foundation saved. The right way to extinguish this fire is to stretch a hand line through the front door, knock down visible fire on the 1st floor, move hand line up to 2nd floor, knock down visible fire, pull ceilings with six foot hooks, extinguish fire in attic with hand line. Overhaul and extinguish any hidden fire.
Reasons for the above: You have to assume that this building is occupied. The exit to this building is the front door. By stretching a hand line through the front door, you control the entrance and egress to this building. You protect the occupants of the 2nd floor and allow fire-fighters to make a search of the second floor via the interior stairs. By knocking down the fire means not completely extinguishing it but to be able to safely stretch that line to the 2nd floor and knock down the 2nd floor visible fire. Then open up the ceilings to completely extinguishing the fire with minimum damage to building and contents.
