Automatic Aid to Structure Fire in New Hampton
January 6, 2018

Meredith companies responded automatic aid for a building fire at 63 Beech Hill Rd in New Hampton. New Hampton and Meredith companies were alerted at 3:09 hours While companies were en route to the scene, information was received that the building was fully involved. 17C1 then requested a 1st alarm. A short time later, 17C1 advised he was still approximately 1 mile from the scene with heavy fire visible. He then requested a 2nd alarm. 14 Engine 1 arrived on scene and encountered an unplowed driveway which delayed the fire attack. Recent snowstorms had dumped approximately 30 inches of snow in the area. In addition to the deep snow, crews struggled with temperatures that hovered around -10° F. Reports were also received that the occupant of the residence could not be located. Crews from several area towns battled the flames for several hours as the fire had extended from the house to an attached barn. 17C1 requested a 3rd alarm at 6:14 to bring additional manpower to the scene due to the weather conditions. Meredith companies were released from the scene at approximately 9:00 hours.

Meredith Companies on scene: 14 Engine 1, 14 Engine 2, 14 Engine 4, 14C1, 14C2
