HUGHSONVILLE FD RESPONDS TO STRUCTURE FIRE

On Monday, January 9, 2023 at 2:06am, the Hughsonville Fire Department was dispatched for a report of smoke coming from a commercial structure, located at 1383 Route 9. While units were en route, New York State Police advised Dutchess 911 that there was a fire at this location.

The first Hughsonville FD units arrived on scene within 5 minutes of dispatch to find active fire from the roof a single-story multi-suite retail building, occupied by a spa, a hearing aid store, an insurance office and a cell phone store. Heavy fire was visible from the center of the roof at the rear of the building. Hughsonville Fire Chief Paul Rogers, Jr. requested a second-alarm be transmitted to bring in additional resources and personnel.

Firefighters deployed three hoselines and gained access to each suite and an electrical room to locate the fire. The fire was located in the ceiling and cockloft area above the electrical room and center occupant suites. Utilizing ladder trucks, firefighters accessed the roof area and contained the fire with minimal fire damage to all four occupancies. The two center occupancies, the electrical room and storage areas at the rear of the structure received water damage.

Hughsonville Fire Chief Paul Rogers, Jr. said, “Thanks to the quick action of our personnel and mutual aid partners, this fire was contained to the center of the structure with only minor damage to the businesses within.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Dutchess County Fire Investigation Division and is not considered suspicious.

The Hughsonville Fire Department was assisted on scene by the New Hackensack Fire Department, New Hamburg Fire Department, Village of Fishkill Fire Department, Wappingers Falls Fire Department, Rombout Fire Department, East Fishkill Fire Department, Town of Wappinger EMS, New York State Police, Town of Wappinger Code Enforcement, Town of Wappinger Highway Department and the Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response.
