FROM THE CROTON FIRE DEPT. FB PAGE:
At 1:37 AM Sunday 12/27/2020, Croton’s Bravest and a FASTeam from #OssiningFire were dispatched to the Metro-North Croton-Harmon Yards for a trailer fire. Units arrived to find one trailer fully engulfed extending to additional trailers, a van, cabinets full of flammable fluids and steel storage containers loaded with combustibles. Within only minutes the fire began to spread to a total of five construction trailers. Members of #crotonfire promptly went to work deploying 5 hose lines, a deck gun and an elevated master stream with the help of our Mutual Aid Companies. Units battled the flames and several explosions in below-freezing temperatures, but brought the blaze under control and cleared the scene in four hours.
Thanks to Ossining, Millwood, Montrose, Montrose VA, Peekskill, Buchanan and Yorktown FDs for the on scene help and to Verplanck & Mohegan FDs for covering our district.
MTA Fire & Police, Croton EMS, Ossining EMS, WCDES Battalion 10, Car 2001 and Cause & Origin Zone 4 were also on scene.
