A call for smoke coming from a house on Barrett Hill Rd. in the Mahopac Falls Fire District, put both fire stations, Carmel Police and EMStar on the road. First responding CPD unit confirmed a working fire. Arriving fire units found downed powerlines and fire with a heavy concentration of smoke. While stretching hose lines, calls were put out to Putnam Valley Fire and Volunteer Ambulance Corps., Mahopac Fire, Mohegan Fire and Carmel Fire for different pieces of apparatus while a call was put in to NYSE&G for a crew to kill power to the property. Incident Command was Capt. Chris Tompkins, who immediately closed the road to traffic. Mahopac School Transportation Supervisor Steve Troost responded and coordinated student drop off with Mahopac Falls Fire Police officers for everyone's safety.
