Ladder to Maybrook for 3 Alarm Structure Fire

At 1230 hours on February 3rd, MFD was dispatched under automatic mutual aid to the Maybrook Fire District with one ladder to the scene of a reported structure fire at Taylor Recycling on Neelytown Road. T-221 and Car 1 arrived along with Maybrook to find a 200X50 metal warehouse with heavy fire inside. MFD crews stretched a hand line off of the ladder and began fire attack inside of the warehouse. After the fire was knocked down, MFD assisted in overhauling and hitting remaining hot spots. The blaze would eventually reach three alarms, bringing in companies from across the county to fill gaps in staffing due to day-time shortages. MFD operated on scene for several hours before returning to service.
