On October 14, the Clifton Park (NY) Fire Department responded to 24 Hendrik Hudson way for multiple calls for a house fire. The first arriving police unit confirmed they had a working structure fire. Also responding were firefighters with Halfmoon, Round Lake, Vischer Ferry, West Crescent, and Jonesville.
A family member that lived across the way made entry in to the home and pulled a family member from the home. The first-arriving engine went to work, searching the home for the family pets and were able to save the family’s dog and one cat.
Firefighters made an aggressive interior attack but were pulled from the building as the roof collapsed in to the second floor because of the heavy fire load in the attic. Firefighters evacuated the building and Truck 4 opened up with a master stream attack, knocking down the heavy fire. This allowed firefighter to make entry back in to the home and knock down the rest of the remaining fire.
One person was taken to the hospital that was rescued from the home and one cat was still not found. No firefighters were injured and the fire is currently under investigation at this time.
