The men of Well 77 fight with their skill, their courage, and their tenacity much more than with derisory technical means. Taming such a flashover requires patience, obstinacy, and a certain amount of unconsciousness as well as technicality. Men also need to be united, to know so well that a simple gesture of the hand says as much as a long explanation that they know their limits and those of their companions. Fire’s raging breath covers all words; its movements are vicious; it only takes a moment of exhaustion or inattention to take you and consume you.
