North White Plains
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.

On January 3rd, the Armonk Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire in the area of 17 Faraway road. Upon arrival 2022 established command and reported a confirmed structure fire. Engine 286 was first due to the scene, along with Tanker 9 and engine 287. Unfortunately due to the severe cold and fierce winds the fire had self vented through the roof and the front door prior to arrival and quickly spread to the rest of the structure. As there is no usable water supply in the area we used tankers from neighboring departments to shuttle water to the scene. All units were clear from the scene at approximately 17:38hrs Continue reading →

The Armonk Fire Department responded to approximately 10 calls within an 8 hour period last night, on July 16th. The calls started when a strong storm cell started to move through the area. We were initially dispatched to a house struck by lightning, outside odor of burning, and a tree on fire. Those incidents proved to be minor or unfounded. As crews were returning to the firehouse, we were dispatched to the Brynwood Country club for a lightning strike and possible inside smoke investigation. Tanker 9 was on location first and noted continual lightning strikes in the area, and confirmed smoke in the structure. Engine 288 286, 51B1 arrived on scene shortly after and conducted an investigation. There was no fire, and only venting was required to clear the smoke. There were other calls in the district at that time which were covered by Mt. Kisco FD and Armonk EMS. Continue reading →

On Saturday, May 26th at 4:20 PM the Armonk Fire Department was dispatched to 14 N. Lake Road for a reported structure fire. Homeowners reported that the house was struck by lightning and filling up with smoke.
Upon arrival of the chiefs, smoke was visible from the street. First arriving crews entered the house and found fire in the basement boiler room area. The fire was knocked down and extinguished. However there was still a significant amount of smoke in the house and attic. Due to the extreme nature of a lightning strike, firefighters checked the entire house for further fire with thermal imaging cameras. In these types of fires, the electrical system in the house can be compromised and we wanted to be sure there was no other fire in the walls of the structure. Continue reading →
