Structure Fire
Sat. May 1st 2010

On May 01 at 1911 hours, firefighters were dispatched to a report of a smoke alarm sounding on the 3rd floor of 150 Oak Street. Subsequent calls reported smoke showing from the windows of the structure.

On arrival of D/C Mongeau, he reported smoke showing from the 3rd floor of a 3 story wood frame residential home. Engine 1, Engine 2, Engine 3 and Tower 1 responded with full crews. On their arrival, Engine 2 hit a hydrant, which fed Engine 1 with a water supply.

Crews stretched 2 interior attack lines to the 3rd floor and conducted aggressive operations. The fire was subsequently knocked down, resulting in minimal damage to the structure. No extension was found in the walls or attic space. Horizontal ventilation was conducted to vent heat and smoke form the building.

All sides of the building were laddered with ground ladders, and the Tower Ladder was set up to provide coverage to the roof in case there was a need for vertical ventilation. Units from Norfolk and New Hartford responded to provide RIT support.

Winchester Center provided station coverage at Fire HQ, and Fire Police directed traffic around the area during the incident.

Many compliments were received concerning the superior job all personnel did at the scene, especially with their quick and aggressive attack and extinguishment, ladder and apparatus placement and textbook tactics and operations. All on-scene firefighters should be proud of the excellent job they did at the incident.
