I've thought about but have never looked for nor tried to write rules for playing out fighting a structure fire.

Not to say that I haven't set fire to buildings, fields, and forests in wargames.

The fire is a non player character. It moves up hill, it moves in the direction of the wind. It can move at the speed of the wind.

Indoors it can do damage to anyone in the room, and after a certain amount it will kill everyone in the room, saving roll for each person who has breathing gear and protective clothing.

After a certain percentage of the building is damaged it will collapse.

I use cotton balls for the fire dyed in red with Rit Dye. Fire hose will knock out D6 cotton balls per turn in the "fire" phase, fire as in gunfire.

It's an interesting addition.

There's a solo wildfire fighting board game. I thought it was interesting enough (roll a bucket of dice, keep some and reroll. You either end up with a combination that reduces the fire or you roll poorly and the fire spreads)

Flash Point Fire Fighting board game… a fine game I should pull out and play again.
