Fire photographer Andrew Deierlein of Priority 1 Photography shared some photos of fire crews from multiple departments working at a house fire last week in Henderson, New York.
At approximately 2020 hours on Monday, January 20th, 2020, Henderson (NY) Fire and EMS were dispatched to 8637 County Route 152 for a possible structure fire. The first alarm brought Belleville Fire Department and Smithville Fire. Upon arrival, units found heavy fire on the Bravo-Charlie corner. Command requested a second alarm, bringing a full response from Sackets Harbor Fire and Adams Fire.
The exterior walls of the house were constructed of masonry blocks, which allowed the structure to act as a fireplace. The abandoned house was cluttered with debris and household products. Due to the location of the call a fill site was established at the town barn and a tanker shuttle was enacted to provide a continuous water supply.
Henderson command requested a third alarm, bringing in Adams Center Fire and Ellisburg Fire for tankers and manpower. At the one-hour mark, Jefferson County car 200 stopped the clock and requested a fourth alarm, bringing Lorraine Fire to the Adams Station and Mannsville Fire to the Belleville station. As of Monday night, the cause of the fire remained unknown.
