By PIO Elle Sacher
January 24, 2024

In the early hours of Wednesday, January 24, 2024, the Mahopac Falls Volunteer Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire at a residence on Old Bullet Hole Road. Assistant Chief Stasiak, arrived at the scene just before 2 am and discovered a fully involved single-family home.

Upon confirming the evacuation of the family and conducting a thorough scene size-up, it became evident that additional resources were needed. Mutual aid was swiftly requested to bring in extra tankers to tackle the intensifying blaze.

Challenges arose in accessing water due to the extended stretch up Old Bullet Hole Road. However, the dedicated responders efficiently established a relay system and a water source approximately a mile from the scene. This strategic move enabled them to effectively combat the fire, utilizing handlines and Mahopac VFD's ladder truck.

Despite the intensity of the situation, there were no reported injuries to the affected family or any of the firefighters on the scene. The collaborative efforts of multiple departments, including Mahopac FD, Putnam Valley FD, Kent FD, Carmel FD, Mohegan FD, Somers FD, Yorktown FD, Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services, Carmel VAC, and Brewster FD, played a crucial role in managing the incident.

The Mahopac Falls Volunteer Fire Department expresses gratitude for the prompt response and seamless coordination among the responding agencies. Investigations into the cause of the fire are underway, and further updates will be provided as they become available.

Mutual Aid: Mahopac FD, Putnam Valley FD, Kent FD, Carmel FD, Mohegan FD, Somers FD, Yorktown FD, Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services, Carmel VAC, and Brewster FD
