When I went through basic firefighter training the instructors did not cover what to do if a fire tornado takes possession of our fire hose.
What would YOU do if your fire hose got swept up?
FYI: In the video caption below, “line” is fire hose, and “guard” is fire control line.

Fire tornado destroyed our line. It threw burning logs across our guard for 45 minutes and pulled our hose 100 plus ft in the air before melting it. That’s definitely a first. #firenado #startthepump #wildfire Note: It got over 200ft tall but the smoke was too think to see it clearly on video. Sorry for the profanity.
