I haven't tried to put out a burning metal-roofed building. But as a boy I watched an old wooden grain elevator burn down. It had been sheathed in corrugated steel, and after a couple of sheets fell down, the volunteer firefighters got the heck out of there.

No, it doesn't really make any difference because you can't go into a building unless it is safe, and it can only be safe for as long as most of the structure is still intact, as long as it is pretty much intact it is going to be very hot as in 1,000 degrees or better, regardless of what type of roof it has. Once you vent it to make it more comfortable to work in, you have to move fast and get to the seat of the fire with the water, because once it gets air it is going to burn up fast and become unsafe. Then you have to back out and spray water from the outside, which is not much fun especially in the winter.
