On Sunday September 9 at 4:09am the Carman Fire Department responded to a report of a porch on fire on Howell St. First arriving units declared a working fire to start our mutual aid protocols. Engine 131 arrived shortly after and deployed two handlines to suppress the fire. District 2 arrived moments later to supply water and help with suppression activities. At this time the cause is still undetermined by the county’s investigation team. Carman wishes to thank the following companies who helped no matter to what degree: Rotterdam District #2, Stanford Heights Fire Department, Fort Hunter Fire Company, Plotterkill Fire Department, South Schenectady Fire Department, and Rotterdam EMS.
