🔥 Very intense early morning fire tore through a large family home in our district 🔥 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.
