I beleive SOMEONE told the officer where to place the rig. Not making judgements, none of us were there but SOMEONE made a career judgement.

A video I saw of the truck earlier (before it was engulfed) shows 2 guys up in the bucket while flaming liquid is headed for the truck, and some other guys appear to be trying to use a hose like a containment boom to keep the liquid away from the truck.  They must have lowered the ladder in a hurry and bailed, leaving the jacks in place.
