Firefighters Battle Two-Alarm House Fire in Cornwall

Firefighters from multiple departments rushed to help the Cornwall Fire Department battle a fully involved house fire in a rural part of Cornwall this afternoon.

The call for the house fire came in shortly before 1:00pm today at 9 Faenza Terrace in the Mountainville and Highland Mills sections of Cornwall. The fire scene was located in a heavily wooded area between Route 32 and Angola Road near the Black Rock Fish and Game Club.

The Cornwall Fire Department’s incident commander arrived on the scene to find heavy fire throughout the residence. He transmitted a second alarm.

The Cornwall-on-Hudson Fire Department responded with a tanker and a pumper. The Salisbury Mills Fire Department responded with two tankers. The Woodbury and Fort Montgomery Fire Departments were also called to the scene with one tanker apiece. The West Point Fire Department raced to the scene with a FAST Team, used to rescue any firefighters who may go down while battling a blaze.

The Vail’s Gate Fire Department was called with a pumper to operate a fill site. Vail’s Gate firefighters hooked into a hydrant on Trout Brook Road and filled tankers, which shuttled water to the scene to assist in fire suppression efforts. There were no fire hydrants in the rural area of the house fire. Within two minutes of receiving the dispatch, the Vail’s Gate Fire Department’s pumper was on the road crewed with six firefighters.

The New Windsor Fire Department was called with a pumper to Cornwall-on-Hudson to standby and cover any other calls in both jurisdictions. New Windsor was unable to assemble a crew, so the Washingtonville Fire Department provided coverage.

The house was 1,782 square feet and contained four bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was built in 1993 and most recently purchased in 2014. Prior to the fire, its value was listed at half a million dollars.
