With the amount of involvement under the hood and passenger compartment, I'm curious to know what he is paying attention to with his hoseline. :?

Well...I suppose, but gas tanks rarely start on fire or explode. Have never witnessed a tank explode in my career. It looks like he's rinsing his boots. I am aware that it is a still shot, whereby he could have been re-positioning the hoseline to a different vantage point. At any rate, the car was a total lose and the fire assuredly went out at some point. His gear looks pretty new, he was probably trying to get it dirty so he doesn't look like a probie.

Our branches (the hose reel gun) get air locked, you have to wind the hose reel gun wide open and back again to displace the air. Its a common problem with them, thats what he was just (finishing) doing.

But becuase most of these cars are dumped in the middle of the night they dont get detected as quick, and the fuel tanks do rupture, and fuel leaks onto the ground and catches fire. The only way to put it out then is to sweep the fire of the top of the burning fuel.

Car fires are very common in large cities in the UK. We have on average 1 car fire every 2 nights.
