On Friday, October 28th 2022, at 1911 hours, Potsdam Fire, Potsdam Rescue, and County Car 10 were dispatched to 7 Broad Street for a reported structure fire. At 1912 hours, Engine 49 ( Career Fire Driver J. Robar) responded. While responding, a portable advised it was a confirmed working fire. Engine 49 arrived on scene at 1913 hours and laid large diameter hose from the fire hydrant at Waverly Street and Broad Street to the scene for water supply. At 1916 hours, Engine 48 (Career Fire Driver M. Maroney) responded, followed shortly by Tower 5 (S. Keleher). 36-2 (M. Bradish) arrived on scene and assumed Command. West Stockholm Fire was requested with manpower to the scene.

On scene, firefighters stretched a 1 3/4" hose line off of Engine 49 and attempted to make an interior attack. Additional hose lines was pulled in attempt to stop the spread of the fire. Due to difficult conditions inside of the structure, Tower 5 was placed in the front of residence and extended to the roof to perform vertical ventilation.

Engine 48 (Career Fire Driver R.Crowe) laid a second large diameter supply line from Leroy and Broad Streets to bring additional water to the scene.
