NFPA 1 in A. and A. provides some guidance regarding flow and 
hydrant spacing for outside storage such as you are dealing with.

Best regards,

Subject: Lumberyard fire flows

This isn't a sprinkler question specifically, but FP-related:   Has anyone ever 
worked on design of a private fire main for a lumberyard?   Huge outdoor piles 
of stored wood products, engineered members mostly, some smaller amounts of 
dimensional lumber.     We're trying to establish a fire flow for hydrants but 
there are no buildings of any size to benchmark and tables in the fire code are 
not of much use because they're based on building area and construction type.   
The fire load here is not in buildings ...
