Ladder to Walden and Wallkill for Reported Structure Fires

At 1734 hours today, MFD was dispatched under mutual aid to the Walden Fire District with one engine and one ladder to the scene of a reported structure fire at the Hannaford’s Food Store off of Oak Street. Car 1, T-221, and E-219 all responded to assist Walden. MFD crews laddered the roof to assist in investigation. The cause was determined to be a transformer issue in the rear of the building. As units were taking up, Walden received a mutual aid request for one ladder and one engine to Wallkill (Ulster County) Fire District for a reported structure fire at their Elementary School. MFD T-221 and E-219 handled this assignment as Walden finished their investigation. Nothing was found on arrival.
