Roof recon should include the use of thermal imagers to "see" hot spots. Extreme caution should be exercised when venturing onto the roof over a working fire in this type of building when doing recon or ventilation. Beware of front parapets, which can easily rise 15 feet or more above the roofiine for aesthetic purposes (see photos 8 and 9). That first step off the aerial in thick smoke could result in serious injury if the roof is well below you.
