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.
