2 Alarm Fire on Long Hill Road East
July 19, 2015
At 12:39pm what seemed like a typical automatic alarm came in for 190 Long Hill Rd east. Chief Reilly arrived on scene to heavy smoke showing from the rear of the structure and quickly upgraded the alarm to a working fire. The home owner was unaware of the fire enveloping the second floor of her home. With Engine 93 out of service, Engine 94 was first arriving and laid in. Tower Ladder 40 setup in the driveway as Engine 92 hit a hydrant from the west side and fed water to the tower ladder. Crews from all three company’s worked together to make an aggressive push on the fire. The second alarm was hit bringing in additional mutual aid units to aid operations in the high heat and humidity. It was later determined that lightening from a early morning storm was to blame for the fire.
2 firefighters were transported to area hospitals with heat exhaustion. We hope them a speedy recovery. A special thanks to Millwood, Ossining, Thornwood, Chappaqua, Pleasantville, and all other mutual aid departments that came out to help.

1st Due House Fire
May 22, 2015
Just hours after Engine 92 was placed back in service from annual maintenance the alarm was sounded at 3:09am for a kitchen fire at number 18 Drislane. While enroute PD was advising they had a active fire in the residence. Shortly there after car 2052 arrived and struck the 10-75 for a fire showing side A in a 100 x 55 wood frame structure. 92 was the first arriving engine and quickly went to work hitting the hydrant and laying in. Engine 92 crew stretched a cross lay and made an aggressive push into the structure. The bulk of the fire was knocked down within 10 minutes of arrival. Crews from Engine 93 and tower ladder 40 assisted in searches, outside vent and ground ladder placement. Thanks to the quick and aggressive engine work fire was contained to the kitchen area. This was a classic text book operation by all units on the fireground. All units cleared the scene by 7:15am with no reported injuries to crew and home owners.
Special thanks to Millwood, Ossining, And Croton fire Departments for their mutual aid response.
