July 3, 2017

On a hot, humid Monday, the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire in the northern end of Ossining. Answering the 1PM call was Engine Company 119 with a compliment of one dozen CFD volunteers. Originally dispatched as a FASTeam, we were advised on the way in to the box that our crew would be needed to assist with the fire attack. At this point the "10-75" was struck by Ossining Command, and an additional FASTeam from the Yorktown Heights FD was dispatched.

Upon the arrival of Car 2082 (A/C Colombo), he assisted interior crews from the OFD and provided them the help of a Thermal Imaging Camera carried in his Fire SUV. E119 arrived a few minutes later, and members conducted a 360 size up of the fire building, threw multiple ground ladders and split into two teams - one to assist with the fire attack, one to continue as a FASTeam. Due to the brutally hot weather - as well as the severe heat within the fire building - firefighters were being rotated out and into rehab quickly to avoid any heat-related injuries to the firefighters.

Thanks to a well-orchestrated, aggressive interior fire attack, the fast-moving blaze was contained to one unit in the building. CFD members remained on scene assisting the OFD for just over three hours.

Thanks to R. Cullen, JT Camp and J. Ferguson for the photos.
