By Fire Driver Robert Pierce
September 19, 2017

At 2145 hours the Potsdam Fire Department was dispatched to respond mutual aid to Norfolk Fire for a confirmed working fire with persons trapped at 67 West Main Street. The fire, discovered by a passing Norfolk firefighter, grew rapidly and blocked the escape route of two residents of the multiple residence occupancy. One resident was rescued after the firefighter, Greg Monroe, pulled his personal truck up to the fire building to reach the victim in a second floor window and remove them safely to the ground. The second victim was forced to drop from a second floor window as the fire took hold of the building. Tower 5, Engine 48,and Rescue 14 were enroute at 2149, arriving on scene at 2210. Members went to work to aid in the firefight. Tower 5 was set up at the front of the building, supplied by Engine 48. The age of the building, as well as the number of apartments it had been divided up into contributed to the difficult extinguishment and extensive overhaul operations. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by members of the St. Lawrence County Fire Investigation Team. All Potsdam units returned to service at 0306 hours.

Units: Tower 5 (M. Bradish), Engine 48 (J. Keleher), Rescue 14 (J. Farnsworth)
 
Mutual Aid: Given to Norfolk Fire, received from West Stockholm Fire
