On Sunday evening around 6:45 PM, the Yorktown Heights Fire Department was dispatched to Wilson Road in the Hunterbrook section of their district for a reported house fire. Units arrived a short time later confirming the fire and struck the "10-75" working fire assignment, bringing Mutual Aid from the Croton-on-Hudson and other area departments to the scene and into their station for coverage.

On this assignment was an Engine and a Tanker from our department to the scene. Answering the call were Washington Engine Company's Engine 119 and Tanker 10 along with Car 2082 (Assistant Chief Colombo) bringing over a dozen volunteers. Yorktown Command requested T10 to the scene to nurse their Engine, and sent E119 to a nearby pond to establish a water source to refill Tankers if need be.

The blaze ran up the front exterior of the home and got into the second floor and attic. A neighbor - who is also a longtime member of the YHFD - notified the residents their home was on fire and helped them escape. The YHFD launched an aggressive interior attack - after briefly knocking down the flames on the outside of the home - using only the water carried on their 2 Engines and Tanker. T10 provided a 5" supply line to their E272 to help complete extinguishment.

E119 was released about an hour later, while 2082 and T10 remained until 9:20 PM.

While we had units working in Yorktown, other CFD companies investigated a gas leak on Old Post Road North. A total of over two dozen CFD members handled this incident working with Con Edison to ensure their was no immediate danger to the neighborhood.

Units: 2082, E119, T10
Mutual Aid: Yorktown Heights FD, Millwood T15, Mohegan FAST E256, Somers T16, Continental Village T11
