Humpday Hangout: Fighting Fires in McMansions

In this week’s Humpday Hangout, Bill Gustin, Mike Dugan, and the rest of the panel will talk about fighting fire in very large modern suburban homes. These buildings, commonly called “McMansions,” are prevalent in suburban subdivisions on the outskirts of town. Their forbidding size—4,500 square feet is considered small—and engineering lightweight construction pose significant problems when it comes to firefighting operations.
