Chapel Oaks Fatal

We made 2nd Truck on this thing. We didn't get to do much. We played a little but then got tossed into the attached exposure. Lesson learned...follow SOP's. 1st Engine made fire attack, per the General Orders. The second engine, which happened to be a quint, ignored the General Orders and acted as a truck and went in without an extra hoseline. Had they had a hose like they were supposed to they would've had a better chance of saving the trapped children.
