Both the new and old style contiguous structures will be constructed with a
combustible cockloft. This cockloft may or may not be fire stopped between
adjacent structures. The incident commander should be of the opinion that fire

Strip stores, taxpayers, shopping centers, and mini-malls include multiple
occupancies attached to each other that may share a common attic or cockloft
space. The cockloft area can be as small as a few inches high to as large as a

rapidly spread undetected. Many older buildings may have old gas lines that
once provided lighting to the store, running through the cockloft. The risk of
escaping gas can also ...

While stores and similar commercial structures pose many of the same problems
that nonfireproof multiple dwellings do, such as large floor areas, common
cocklofts over the entire building, and Class 3 ordinary construction, they have
many distinct differences that make them deadly. Firefighters must understand
these differences and adopt tactics that reflect these differences. Fire loads are
much higher in commercial structures than they are in residences, which
demands a ...

America has had its share of these buzzards; and in the name of my countrymen I
return them profound thanks for the compliments they have lavished upon us,
and the variety of particulars concerning our own country, which we should never
have discovered without their assistance. Influenced by such sentiments, I am
delighted to find that the Cockloft Family, among its other whimsical and
monstrous productions, is about to be enriched with a genuine travel-writer. This
is no less a ...

The elder of these two young men was Captain Cockloft, of the B.S.R.V.C., while
the younger (the one who looked so martial and beautiful) was myself. After an
hour's panting and puffing, whistling, creaking, and stopping, the train rushed into
a station, and the voice of a sleepy porter was heard to exclaim " B'rum Crubs, B'
rum Crubs ! " Upon which Cockloft and I jumped out of our carriage and made
ready to deliver our tickets. The engine, which seemed to have a very hearty
contempt ...
