Importance of Not Advancing Into Fire until The Smoke Has Cooled Discussion

Smoke Clouds and Firefighter

Recently, there has been discussion over the importance of not advancing into a fire until you have cooled the smoke with a wetting agent. The theory is that once the smoke is cooled, reheating of the combustibles in the compartment will be slower, as the cooled smoke can no longer produce the radiative heat conditions to support flashover. Reportedly, smoke conditions will not worsen, contrary to what has been taught in many fire academies. What has been your observation, experience, reflection, or reasoning for wetting agents or water on cooling smoke? Do you support this? Why, or why not?
