Crews Handle 2 Alarm Structure Fire on Kaisertown Road

At 2019 hours on January 7th, Montgomery FD was alerted to a reported structure fire, possibly a barn on fire, on Kaisertown Road. Car 1 (Rios) arrived on scene and immediately requested a second alarm and a tanker task force for a fully involved barn fire. Engine 223 stretched multiple hand lines and portable monitors to set up for defensive operations, while Engine 219 dropped 5 inch down the long driveway to establish a water source for 223. Truck 221 staged on the roadway while it’s crew went to work opening walls on the barn to better hit the flames. Maybrook FD set up a water draft site at twin ponds off of route 17K and filled tankers from Pine Bush FD, Circleville FD, Maybrook FD, and Bullville FD that were shuttling water to the scene.
