Around 3:30pm on Monday March 6th when Golden's Bridge Fire Department was dispatched to the area of 10 Wild Oaks Rd for a outside propane investigation. Within in seconds Car 2141 was responding and was given a update by 60 Control that the caller was reporting "A Large Cloud or Black Toxic Fumes and a Odor of Electrical Burning. Car 2143 and Engine 140 was responding within minutes of Car 2141. When Car 2141 arrived he had heavy smoke coming from the boiler room building and a active fire in the room. Car 2141 requested that Golden's Bridge be redispatched for additional manpower and apparatus. Also requesting a Engine from Croton Falls and a Engine from Katonah to Stand by in their Firehouses. Car 2142, Engine 139 and Rescue 25 were on the road soon after the request for additional was made. Engine 140's crew immediately went to work when they arrived splitting the crew half doing fire attack and half doing water operations. The fire attack crew quickly knocked down the fire and began checking for additional hazards. The stand by Engine from Croton Falls was requested to the scene and the stand by Engine from Katonah was moved from their firehouse to Golden's Bridge Firehouse. Golden's Bridge Units were on scene for about 2 and half hours before turning the scene over to building management.
