πŸ”₯ Very intense early morning fire tore through a large family home in our district πŸ”₯ This morning around 1:30 am the Coeymans Hollow Fire Company was dispatched to 58 Lawson Lake Road for a structure fire. Albany County dispatch advised the first chief enroute that they received two 911 calls reporting a working structure fire. Immediate mutual aid was requested from the Onesquethaw and Westerlo Fire Companies. After arrival of the first chief it was determined additional resources where needed and more Mutual was requested. Our fire fighters and neighboring departments worked diligently battling water supply issues on a very quick and intense fire. The propane tanks on the smaller end of the house suffered extreme heat exposure resulting in releasing gas feeding the fire. Multiple hours of overhaul after the working fire was knocked down commenced and members remained on scene well into the day. A rekindle called our Company back to the scene to hit some hot spots around 1900 this evening. The fire is still under investigation. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the family who lost their home this morning and we all pray this is never the way we meet our residents.

Coeymans Hollow units on scene:
Car 6-01
Car 6-02
Car 6-03
Engine 6-20
Tanker 6-30
Engine/rescue 6-10
Brush/ rescue 6-40

Thank you to every single person who was on the scene helping my family. It took an entire community to contain this blaze. Yes, we lost everything. But we are alive and the forest around what was our home is still standing.

Wow some fire. Prayers go out to all the family and the men who assisted in fighting it.

Thank you for your service. My family is safe. They made it out safely πŸ™

Please consider donating to help my friends. This family is one of the most caring giving families I know. They lost everything. Three kids four adults plus pets that all have immediate needs to be met. There's a go fund me and you can give to them via home church King's Chapel Church kingschapel.churchcenter.com/giving/to/marcello-kunuria-family?fbclid=IwAR31-csFhcs-1puJzYegJ8y2L... gofund.me/a171766e There are at least 2 GoFund me accounts going

So sorry thank God everyone got out without harm. Amen

At some point when you know it’s a total loss would it be better to just let it burn itself out and protect the surroundings?

The vast majority of the responders during todays incident are also members of our community. The valiant efforts today displayed by not only the members of the Village of Ravena Fire Department, but all of our neighboring departments and agencies should be a reminder to all that despite the outcome of an incident, that the nature of our community comes to light.

All of todays responders came together as one to assist not just one agency, but each other in our communities time of need.

We want everyone that responded today to know how much we appreciate your efforts and assistance today.
