Bedford Hills Fire pagers alerted at 1:30 pm on October 18 for a reported chimney fire with smoke inside the residence on Guard Hill rd. Cars 2031 and 2032 were responding immediately after dispatch and were notified by 60 control that the home owner stated there was fire coming from the top of the chimney and there was smoke filling the house. With Tower Ladder 57 being out of service Chief Bueti requested a ladder from Mount Kisco Fire Department to stand by in their headquarters. As Engine 198 Rescue 10 and Tanker 5 were responding Chief Bueti arrived on scene and with a quick size up of the residence determined that the Tower Ladder would be needed on scene and requested it to respond. Tower Ladder 14 from MKFD responded as well as Engine 199 and Utility 6 bringing the full department response from Bedford Hills. Car 2031 arrived on location and established Guard Hill rd command as car 2032 took command of all fire ground operations. Crews from Engine 198, Rescue 10 and Tower Ladder 14 operated on scene as all other units stood by until needed. Engine 198 members were assigned interior operations, extinguishing the remaining fire in the fire place and checking all floors in the area of the chimney for any kind of extension. Tower Ladder 14 was assigned roof operations to sweep the chimney with a chain and check for any visible fire or heat damage. After it was determined that all fire was extinguished and there was negative extension outside the flu of the chimney all units were placed back into service by BHFD command.
