Fishkill N.Y. - The Village of Fishkill Fire Department with the assistance of numerous mutual aid companies battled a fast-moving fire at the Park Condominiums located off Loudon Drive in the village. The Dutchess County 911 center began receiving multiple calls for a fire in building 25 of the complex at approximately 2:30 am on the morning of June 25, 2007. The Village of Fishkill Fire Department was subsequently dispatched along with the East Fishkill Fire Department with their F.A.S.T. team. First arriving units arrived to find a heavy volume of fire on the second floor of building 25 that had already broken through the roof. Chief Dean Scofield assumed command and immediately requested mutual aid from the Beacon, Chelsea, Glenham, Hughsonville, and Rombout fire departments. An initial primary search was attempted but unsuccessful due to the volume of fire. The occupants were originally unaccounted for but were later found uninjured and among the crowd of spectators. Numerous lines were placed into operation and firefighters began their aggressive interior attack on the fire making numerous openings in the ceilings to get at the fire above. The fire was quickly knocked down by the Village of Fishkill with the assistance of their mutual-aid companies and overhaul operations were initiated. The Dutchess County Fire Investigation Division was then requested to investigate the cause of the fire which is unknown at this time.
