At 10:40hrs on Monday April 17th, the Tower Ladder 57 was dispatched to the scene of a 2nd Alarm Structure Fire in the Village of Port Chester. While enroute C2391 (Sposta) reported there was heavy fire throughout a four-story vacant that had extended into the exposure, he subsequently transmitted a Third Alarm.

Tower Ladder 57 was originally instructed to position in the front of the structure, however Command determined a Tower Ladder would be needed in the rear. To achieve maximum use and scrub area the Tower was backed up E Broadway from Westchester Ave to access the fire building. Dobbs Ferry Engine 49 provided the Tower with a 5-inch supply line. TL-57 operated in its position for nearly five hours before being released by Command.

Due to the heavy volume of fire and multiple master streams in service the municipal water system was overly taxed, a Tanker/Water Supply Taskforce was requested to the scene bringing assets from two different states and three counties to assist.

Later in the operation, Utility 6 and the hose roller responded to assist in the getting all of the fire apparatus repacked and back in service.

Bedford Hills units cleared the scene at around 17:00hrs.

Units: Car 2033, Tower Ladder 57 & Utility 6
