We responded to a structure fire on Whippoorwill Rd East last night. Crews arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the garage. Firefighters were able to make an attack through the side door and contain the fire which was quickly extinguished.
Thanks to all the departments who responded mutual aid and assisted with the fire.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all that were affected by the horrific tragedy in Valhalla last night with the Metro North Train, especially the victims and their families. Thank you to all the first responders who were on scene helping to bring the situation under control.
Events like this affect everyone differently and there are many ways to cope with the events. Please reach out to someone if you think you need help.
The numbers for 2014 are in! We responded to: 509 Fire Calls, and 504 Ambulance calls for a total of 1013 alarms.
We are so fortunate as a department to have a great group of members who live and work in our community. We are a volunteer organization and are constantly in need of new members who want to learn something new and become a firefighter or EMT. Most importantly, help their neighbors by giving back.
One of our newest EMT’s wrote a letter to the community that he would like to share. It talks about his experiences, and thoughts about joining the Fire Department, and how it has helped him, and helped him give back.
Please read and share the letter with the community. We are always looking for new members and will be hosting 2 open houses for people who may be interested or just want to learn more.

Thank you to all the departments that responded to our structure fire today in Armonk. It was great to have the extra help and all of the departments showed great professionalism and support throughout the incident.

Cause and Origin
The Armonk Fire Department responded to an early morning commercial alarm at Zero Otto Nove restaurant on Old Rt 22. Upon arrival there was a slight smell of smoke in the air. Crews made entry and discovered a smoke condition throughout the kitchen and second floor. Upon investigating further it was discovered that there was a fire burning between the first and second floor. A confirmed structure fire was called and firefighters worked on finding the fire and opening up the floor and the ceiling. Once the ceiling opened up the smoke condition worsened and fire started rolling out from under the floor. It was quickly extinguished and we began overhauling to ensure that there was no other fire that spread. Luckily the damage was minimal and the restaurant was able to open only a few days later.
