On my second night of my control burn for fire school, my crew entered the acquired structure that was lit on fire in one room. The fire was lit in one room and quickly grew to the second ignition area saved for another fire, we would’ve have made it to the fire quicker if someone from the other teams was in the way of my egress to the structure. I was the nozzle man quickly entering the Alpha side of the structure, and crawling the small hallway to the rear of the structure to extinguish our fire when to the right of me i see heavy smoke banking down to my helmet and within seconds heavy fire was nearly over mine and my classmates heads, my second guy behind me quickly alerted me of the increased worsening condition and I was able to retreat a few feet away from the near flashover to safely and efficiently extinguish the fire without incident.
Situational Awareness- Although it was my job in which I did. The other crewmembers should have been aware of the worsening condition prior to me encountering the near flashover occurring next to me. This could have possibly caused some injury if we didn’t see the fire any sooner than we did.
