Structure fire: 17 North High Street

At 2101 hours a full assignment was dispatched to 17 North High Street for a reported kitchen fire.

Upon arrival, responding units found a fully involved structure fire.

The fire was quickly knocked down with the use of the first due engine’s deck gun (E237), immediately followed by an interior attack with two 2-inch handlines.

Extensive overhaul was required due to the intensity of the fire.  Extensive damage, but fortunately, only one minor firefighter injury.

Relocating to our quarters:  Tarrytown E80 and Irvington L36.

Our thanks to all for their assistance!!!


Heavy fire throughout the structure upon arrival.
