Both the new and old style contiguous structures will be constructed with a
combustible cockloft. This cockloft may or may not be fire stopped between
adjacent structures. The incident commander should be of the opinion that fire
walls between buildings are nonexistent or compromised until proven otherwise.
This skepticism will allow him to take the necessary action to cut off the fire early
and not be caught off guard by a rapidly spreading fire. Sometimes, it will be easy
to detect the ...

Strip stores, taxpayers, shopping centers, and mini-malls include multiple
occupancies attached to each other that may share a common attic or cockloft
space. The cockloft area can be as small as a few inches high to as large as a
few feet high. It also provides an open channel above the ceilings where fire can
rapidly spread undetected. Many older buildings may have old gas lines that
once provided lighting to the store, running through the cockloft. The risk of
escaping gas can also ...

Size: 1%-in. or 2-in. handline Placement: To the B exposure Objective: Protect
the evacuation and prevent against any extension via shafts or the common

most threatened.

At times, the smoke in the cockloft can be so heavy that it prevents you from
seeing the fire above the layers of ceilings. TICs (thermal imaging cameras) are a
vital asset at fires in void spaces such as cocklofts. Check the ceiling area
immediately inside the entrance door and continue checking as you advance.
The TIC cannot see through multiple hung ceilings, so it is essential to make
holes with the hook first. Make a new hole in the ceiling every 8 to 10 ft. If a TIC is
not available, you ...

In cases of top-floor fires, the cockloft may have to be exam- ined for fire
extension. Fire fighters can pull ceilings on the top floor to examine the cockloft. If
the fire has extended into the cockloft, roof-cutting opera- tion should commence
immediately. A fire traveling in the cockloft could easily extend to the adjoining
wings, causing extensive damage to the top floor. A large ventilation hole should
be cut over the fire to help limit fire travel. Top-floor ceilings must be pulled and
hose lines ...

The largest concealed space in the apartment building and H-type multiple
dwelling is the upper-level fire that involves the cockloft area. These areas are
large with heights averaging around 3' to 4', covering the entire top floor area of
the building. Height dimensions of the cockloft will fluctuate as the roof pitches
toward or away from roof scuppers designed for water runoff. From this
association it should also be expected that as fire enters the roof area near a
scupper, it would ...

If the scuttle is open at the ceiling level but boxed in through the cockloft, the
building is being vented. If smoke is coming out but there is a panel at the ceiling
level, the cockloft is being vented. If there is no closure at the ceiling level or the
cockloft, both the building and the cockloft are being vented. If there is a closure
at the ceiling level, it must be removed or knocked out. This should be done with
an axe, a ceiling hook, or some other tool, depending on the depth of the opening
