Fire units arrived to a fire already venting through the roof. Large diameter hand lines and one elevated stream were deployed defensively. A nearby dwelling on the “B” exposure was starting to catch at the eaves but the fire was quickly knocked down and that structure sustained minimal damage. Later, a fatality was discovered in the structure of origin.
