Just after 3:00 am units from Monroe FD were dispatched to a house on fire on Clarke Street in the village of Monroe. Units arrived to a 2.5 story house with fire showing from side 1 and quickly requested the 2nd alarm which brought R-581 as the FAST. Car 3 (Bates) and R-581 responded within 3 minutes with 7 men. The FAST arrived to find the main body of fire knocked down and set up on side 1. Command requested the FAST split with 3 members reporting to the 2nd floor to open up, while 4 members maintained a FAST presence. Eventually the entire crew was put to work opening up the 2nd floor and hitting hot spots. The crew returned to Washingtonville in just over 2 hours.
