At around 0230 hours Sunday morning, the Vista and South Salem Fire Departments were dispatched to smoke in the building on Smith Ridge Road.
Upon arrival Vista Car 2562 had smoke showing throughout the residence and elevated our response to a "Level 1 Alarm." Vista Engine 141, Vista Tanker 4, South Salem Engine 166 and South Salem Tanker 2 quickly arrived on scene and placed an 1-3/4" hose line in operation. Vista Fire Command determined what caused the fire and Firefighters minimized fire damage to a small part of the residence. After determining that the structure had been adequately extinguished, command was terminated and units returned to service shortly before 0345 hours.
It should be noted that this residence was saved as the homeowner was alerted to a problem thanks to working smoke detectors in the home.
We would like to thank the South Salem Fire Department, Pound Ridge Fire Department, Golden's Bridge Fire Department, Ridgefield (CT) Fire Department, Bedford Hills Fire Department, New Canaan (CT) Fire Department, Westchester EMS Paramedics and Battalion Chief 13 for their help this Sunday morning.
