BHFD FAS Team Responds to Second Multi-Alarm Fire in less then 24 Hours
By Chief of Department Jason Nickson
August 26, 2019

Shortly before 01:30 on Sunday August 25th - BHFD FAS Team was requested to the Village of Croton for a Working Structure Fire. Upon the arrival of Chief Colombo, a 2nd Alarm was transmitted. BHFD FAS Team was dispatched simultaneously with Yorktown Heights –and both teams arrived within minutes of each other.

As we did several hours earlier, it was decided that both teams would combine due to the size of the structure, number of Firefighters on the Fire Ground and difficulty to access all sides of the Structure.

BHFD remained on scene until released by Croton Command.
