Several companies are combating a working structure fire in a three-story, Victorian-style, balloon-frame house with a basement. The fire originated in the basement and spread to the main, or first floor. Although fire on the main floor had been suppressed, there is still active fire in the attic. The second floor does not seem to have any fire involvement.

Identify the function of each principle, structural component in typical building design. In your response, please identify the following:

  •   Major issues: Identify the major problems that should be considered given the scenario, building construction, structural components associated with a balloon frame house, and the hazards of the fire spread, as described.

  •   Potential solutions: Provide potential solutions for the major issues identified and any other problems associated with the scenario. Often there is more than one solution, so it is useful to evaluate each solution in terms of its advantages and disadvantages. This will also assist in determining your recommendations.

  •   Recommendations: This section should outline your recommendations based upon the proposed solutions for each of the identified problems.

    Your paper should be at least two pages in length. You are required to use APA formatting and to cite any references used.
