Commercial Structure Fire in Florida, New York

The Florida, New York fire department was dispatched to this fire on Tuesday evening May 24, 2005.

On arrival, units were confronted with heavy fire conditions in a commercial farm building. The type of construction and volume of fire dictated a defensive operation.

The first due engine laid a large diameter supply line from the road to the fire building, while the second engine in completed the lay to a nearby pond to set up a drafting operation.

An engine from the Goshen fire department picked up that hose lay at its midpoint and relayed in line to the attack engine.
