No Injuries From Weekend Fire

Several local departments responded to the scene

On Saturday morning the Adelphia Fire Company and the Farmingdale Fire Department were dispatched to a reported structure fire at 650 Squankum Yellowbrook Rd. 

Farmingdale Fire Department Assistant Chief Robert Lewis confirmed the fire was in a barn, which contained large amounts of hay and approximately 10 horses. He was joined on the scene by Chief Brian Prochnow of the Adelphia Fire Company, who requested tanker trucks from the Squankum Fire company and the Freewood Acres Fire Company.

The first arriving companies attempted an aggressive interior attack but were unsuccessful due to heavy fire conditions. After that master stream operations were used and the fire was placed under control.

No injuries were reported, and all occupants of the barn and livestock were removed from the barn without any incident.
