On Friday evening around 6:20pm, Millwood FD was requested to the Yeshiva Complex in Mt. Kisco with Tanker 15 for a reported structure fire along with Yorktown Heights Volunteer FD Tanker 14. Upon the arrival of Mt. Kisco chiefs, a 10-75 assignment (working fire) was dispatched, bringing Millwood Engine 248 to the scene, as well as a FASTeam and tanker from Bedford Hills Fire Department, and a tanker from Katonah Fire Department. With the heavy amount of fire showing from the structure, a surround and drown operation was put in place. This fire would eventually reach a 3rd alarm for resources. Millwood members would assist members of The Chappaqua Fire Department, Pleasantville Volunteer Fire Department, Ossining Fire Department, Banksville Fire Company, Golden's Bridge Fire Department, Briarcliff Manor Fire Department, Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department, Somers Volunteer Fire Department, Pound Ridge Volunteer Fire Department, Pocantico Hills Fire Department for over 6 hours. Coverage of Mt. Kisco and Bedford Hills was provided by Croton Falls Fire Department, South Salem Fire Department, and Armonk Fire Department. Millwood Tanker 15 was then requested to return to the scene at 5am and again at 1:20pm for rekindles of last nights fire. Members are at the scene right now for a possible rekindle. Great work done by all members of all departments during a very long night!
