Hudson Valley Fire Department Needs Our Help
Can you help?
If you missed it from the weekend, we heard reports that the folks at the Tivoli Fire Department in Dutchess County had to respond to a fire at their fire house on Friday night around 10:30 p.m.
We got to talk to the Chief of the Tivoli Fire Department, Marc Hildabrand on the Wakin' Up with Cj and Jess Show today about what happened and how we can help. Marc told us that back on Friday after they had a few of their trucks in the festival of lights in Red Hook, the trucks were put back in the bays at the fire station and about an hour and half later they started to receive reports that the fire station was on fire. Marc also said that a volunteer member was on the scene in about a minute of the reported fire and was able to rush inside to save a truck and begin to try and put out the fire. Firefighters were able to save an engine truck, a UTV and a boat but the fire house was severely damaged and may be a total loss.
The fire is under investigation but Chief Hildabrand told us "we think it might have been caused by an electric issue with one of the trucks that were inside of the firehouse."
