    Question Cranesville, NY Incident

    The following was posted on the NY State website. Does anyone know where the investigation stands?

    Fire Investigation Technical Assistance
    Case #02A18

    ALBANY-- (April 30, 2002) -- On April 27, 2002 the Cranesville Volunteer Fire Department was in the process of conducting a live fire training exercise at 110 Poplar Drive in the Town of Amsterdam, Montgomery County, New York, when a fire/explosion occurred which resulted in the injury of 10 firefighters and one civilian. The training exercise was being conducted as a controlled burn of a vacant residential structure. The site was reported to have been previously utilized by the fire department for other live fire training evolutions. The intent of the April 27th exercise was to complete the demolition of the two story woodframe structure.

    The Montgomery County Fire Coordinators Office has asked the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control to provide technical assistance with the investigation of the cause of the fire and subsequent explosion. Investigators from the State Fire Office, in conjunction with Investigators from the Montgomery County Sheriffs Department, responded to the incident and are assisting the Montgomery County Fire Coordinator and Cranesville Fire Department with this investigation.
