Glen NY-4 FF's injured in building collapse during overhaul
Shortly after midnight on Saturday, 11/04 the Glenn VFD in Montgomery County NY was dispatched to a structure in the center of their village near state route 30 and 161. This 1800's 2 story was well involved and by 3AM this fire was in the overhaul stage when a masonry wall collapsed and trapped 4 FF's. Local media reports 1 FF is critical, face and chest injures, the remaining 3 are either released or will soon be released. 7 companies fought this fire, list not available, via tanker shuttle. This is rural upstate NY.
Stay safe..make that safer..on your next call.
