On Thursday December 29th shortly after 7 p.m. the Dunkirk Volunteers were dispatched to a reported commercial building fire at the North Beach Public Works Building. The engine and truck were quickly on the road. Units from the North Beach Volunteer Fire Department arrived to find fire showing from a 40’ x 75’ garage located at the facility.

Engine 51 soon arrived on scene and completed the water supply, stretched a backup hose line, and assisted with suppression. Truck 5, arriving simultaneously, positioned to use the aerial ladder for ventilation. The truck crew went to work placing ground ladders, opening up the building, checking for extension, and cutting a ventilation hole in the roof. The fire was quickly extinguished and no injuries were reported.
