What Would You Do? Topic: Hose Stretch

Fire in a on the 3rd floor of a 5 story non-fire proof multiple dwelling. You're in the engine and you're stretching off the rear of the rig. The engine is nosed in and hooked up to the blocked hydrant and there are 2 double parked PD cars (NEVER HAPPENS ) parked along side the normally parked cars.  There is room in front of all of the normally parked cars and between the double parked PD cars...

Which way are you stretching the line? Heading toward A, or B, and why?

Let's hear your thoughts.

Extra Credit:

How much hose do you need to get to the fire? You have no well! You can ball park the distances...
