Wednesday morning at 8:48am, South Salem firefighters were dispatched to an outside odor of propane on Church Tavern Road. After investigating, it was determined that the smell was coming from the former Le Chateau Restaurant, which is currently under going renovation. When units arrived on scene they discovered a 1000 gallon propane tank that had been damaged and was leaking. Firefighters assessed the tank and determined that because of the damage and position of the tank, it was best to continue to allow the propane to off gas, and use a hand line to disperse it. Vista Fire Department's Tanker and manpower were requested to the scene to assist and an engine from Pound Ridge Fire Department was put on standby at the South Salem firehouse. An employee from the company that owned the tank came out towards the end of the operation. Once the tank was empty, crews went and metered the building. All units were back in service by 11:45am.

Units: 2451, 2453, 167, T2, R21, 166(water source)
Mutual Aid: Vista E141, T4, Pound Ridge 2402 and E113 (standby), Lewisboro Police
