At approximately 9:00pm on Sunday April 15th the South Salem Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a “Pool Cabana” on fire on East Ridge Road in Waccabuc. Upon arrival to the scene 2nd Assistant Chief DeLaurentis (2453) transmitted that there was visible fire from a distance. 1st Assistant Chief DeVito (2452) then requested the 10-75 for the first alarm mutual aid assignment. The first arriving engine (E-166) quickly stretched hose lines to a 15'x20' single story structure in the back of the property to extinguish the flames while Chief Lynch (2451) set up command. Companies from Croton Falls Fire Department assisted in placing a ground ladder to the roof to cut an opening and check for fire extension. The fire was put under control within 10 minutes of units operating and the scene was secured for the Cause & Origin team to do their investigation.

Units: 2451, 2452, 2453, Engine 166, Engine 167, Tanker 2, Rescue 21
Mutual Aid: We would like to thank our mutual aid departments from the Bedford Hills FAST, Croton Falls Fire Department, Vista Fire Department, Golden’s Bridge Fire Department, Battalion 13, WCDES Car 4, WCDES Car 24, Cause and Origin Zone 5, LVAC, WEMS 45M3 and the Lewisboro Police Department for answering the call.
