04/19/2016 Brush Fire by Tom Whittemore.
At 5:38 Pm East Greenbush Fire Department was
dispatched for a brush fire off of Phillips Rd. Upon arrival a plume of smoke could be seen
in the woods. Engine 9 arrived at Phillips Rd. and hiked in to attack the fire. EGFD Car 1 determined that it might be better
to access the fire from the railroad tracks so remaining units responded to Hays Rd. and the railroad tracks. Due to the size
of the brush fire Mutual aid was requested from Best Luther, Clinton Heights, Castleton, Schodack Valley, and East Schodack.
