Attic fires are typically ventilation controlled fires with fuel surfaces that are difficult to reach. Without proper smoke and surface cooling prior to ventilation, the fire may grow substantially and possibly result in a total loss. The fuel surfaces must be cooled to stop the fire; however, both existing and created access openings may not provide the necessary line of sight access for effective water application to those surfaces.
Fognails may provide the required access needed. Not only to begin cooling the smoke and limiting the fire spread early in the incident, but also allowing additional time for more resources to arrive. After the smoke is cooled and the fire is brought under control, the Fognails can then be moved to other positions. New positions may provide the new stream angles needed to further cool the surfaces inside the attic and to stop pyrolysis. The end result is minimal water damage to the home due to the low flow and small droplets of the Fognails.
