This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

TERRYVILLE, NY - On July 1st, at the same time firefighters from multiple departments were assisting Coram FD six miles away, Terryville firefighters also had work on their hands as a reported electrical fire was much more than just a reported outlet smoking.

As units looked into the sky heavy smoke was seen in the distance. Arriving chiefs requested mutual aid for heavy smoke and flames coming from a second floor condo. Firefighters went right to work in the 80-plus degree weather making entrance to the fire building with hand lines.

After a battle with the red devil, firefighters were asked to evacuate the building as fire extended out of the roof and back of the condo. The fire was brought under control by more than 50 firefighters in under one hour. No injuries were reported, but at least two families were displaced.
