The Hamlin Morton Walker fire district was dispatched mutual aide to the Brockport Fire District for the Structure Fire. Hamlin 2412 was initially sent for the fill in to Brockport Station 1. 2412 responded on the fill in with Captain Barker and a crew of 4. Chief Prince responded to the Brockport fire station.
Brockport Chief Smith went on location with light smoke from the structure five minutes after initial dispatch. Shortly after the interior operations crew reported they had heavy smoke and a lot of heat in the kitchen. Chief Marenus declared a working fire and assumed command at this time. Chief Marenus reported he has a two story structure with the second floor going good. Chief Marenus requested Hilton 260 to the front of the structure to open the roof.
During the incident Brockport 234 reported the hydrant across the street from the structure had froze up and they were attempting another water source. Thirty minutes after initial dispatch crews were still reporting heavy smoke from the rear of the structure. Interior crews were reporting no visible fire at this time.
Hamlin 2412 was special called into the scene for manpower. The crew from 2412 assisted in overhaul of the second floor.
The entire incident was back in service at 6:35 AM, making the incident over 3 hours long.
