At 12:12pm on Tuesday, March 17th, units from Liverpool, Mattydale, Baldwinsville, Moyers Corners, and North Syracuse were dispatched to 131 Kearney Ave, in Station 2’s area, for smoke coming from the rear of a house. Car-2 [D/C Ormsby] arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the rear or a two story wood-frame private dwelling. After a size up, a ‘Signal 99’ was transmitted as Engine 5 [Lt. Cisne] was arriving as the first due engine. They quickly stretched and attack line and forced entry into the structure, while the chauffeur secured a water supply from a hydrant across the street . Truck 2 [FF Warren] and Engine 1 [Capt. Vassallo] arrived together and deployed a second hoseline into the residence, while Truck 2 was tasked with vertical ventilation. North Syracuse Engine 6 arrived and was tasked with a primary search. D/C Ormsby passed command to A/C O’Key, and took interior operations. As crews advanced to the second floor they were met with heavy heat and smoke conditions, hampering visibility. Crews found fire in the B/C corner and it was quickly extinguished. Engine 3 [Lt. Paparo] arrived along with Mattydale Quint 3, Moyers Corners Engine 32, and Baldwinsville Engine 4, and those units went to work deploying ground ladders and assisting with searches, ventilation, and overhaul. Baldwinsville Rescue 6 was added to the alarm as a replacement RIT team. The fire was quickly placed under control and there were no injuries. Unfortunately, several pets were found deceased during the course of operations. Other Liverpool Units onscene included Rescue 1, Rescue 2, and Squad 2. EAVES ambulance responded with their incident rehabilitation trailer, and Rural/Metro ambulance stood by onscene. We would like to thank Belgium Cold-Springs, Clay, and Hinsdale Fire Departments for covering Liverpool’s stations during the incident. All units were back in service by 15:40.
