Briarcliff pool pavilion goes up in flames
December 13, 2015
While many were enjoying their evening at the annual Scarborough holiday party the call came in for the pavilion on fire at law park. While units were in route the working fire was confirmed for the fully involved pavilion fire. Upon arrival units were met with heavy fire conditions throughout the structure. Engine 92 was 2nd arriving and positioned themselves in front of the building. Crews from 92 secured their own water source from pleasantville rd, and setup a master stream along with pulling many lines including getting access to the rear of the structure to setup 2 1/2 lines in the pool area. 92 was also tasked with feeding ossinings ladder 42.
This is our 6th fire in the village this year. Including MVA’s, car fires, brush fires, mutual aid fires etc this have been one of our busiest years on record.

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.
