By 2nd. Lieutenant Raymond Baker Jr.
June 18, 2020

At approximately 4am on Thursday June 18th, Croton Falls Fire Dept. was dispatched to a reported structure fire on Daisy Ln. Prior to the arrival of 2072, a 10-75 working fire assignment was transmitted due to an orange glow being visible from a distance. This assignment brings many resources from Westchester and Putnam counties. With the transmission of the 10-75, Tanker 1 from GBFD was requested to the scene. Within minutes of dispatch, Car 2143, and Tanker 1 were responding to the mutual aid request. With Tanker 1 being the first mutual aid unit on scene, they were put right to work dropping the portable pond. Other Golden's Bridge manpower that was on scene assisted Croton Falls, Bedford Hills, Katonah, and South Salem manpower with fire ground operations throughout the incident. Golden's Bridge units were released by command around 7:30am, and returned to Golden's Bridge.
