    Fire is throughout the attic. Light weight construction. This place is just waiting to light up. You might have a chance for a VES from the windows if a know location. Otherwise high risk, low gain solution. Lead off with a high flow line. Might consider a minigun if you have an established water supply. No Joy here, JF
