A single-family, single-story house with a heavy fuel load in the attic was burning, and the metal tile roof over the garage soon collapsed. The dispatch level was a full 1st alarm (3 engines, 2 trucks, 2 BCs, Med 30) followed by special call for two additional engines and Fire Associates due to extensive overhaul. Drinking water, Gatorade, coffee, hot chocolate and Clif Bars were provided to the firefighters. FSU-3 was released sometime after 0200 and John got home by 0300 for a few hours of sleep.
