At 0855 this morning, MFD was dispatched under mutual aid with one tanker to the scene of a seventh alarm structure fire at the old Middletown Psychiatric Center in the City of Middletown Fire District. Car 3 and E-223 responded and operated along with dozens of other companies for several hours assisting in water shuttle and fire suppression operations before returning to service. An additional call for service was received at 1451 hours for one ladder to stand by at Middletown FD Central Station while Middletown remained on scene of the fire. Car 3 and T-221 handled this assignment. While operating at this call, MFD also handled an EMS call in the village. Photos from OCNYFC FB page.
