HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. – A fund has been set up for the victims of a Hoosick
Falls fire last week.
Multiple companies were called to a fire at 28 Center St. just before 3 a.m.
Friday. Hoosick Falls Fire Chief Robert Bornt said they believe the fire
started in the rear of the building.
The fire was put out by 5 a.m., but fire crews had difficulties putting out the
blaze due to the cold temperatures.
"With the cold condition, we had problems getting water out of the
hydrant system," Bornt said. "The hydrant system was fine but froze
up trying to get to the hydrants. Man power was another issue with the cold
trying to get the guys to the fire stations."
In addition, crews had difficulty getting the trucks near the home because
of tight corners and power lines were in the way of the aerial ladder.
All residents of the home got out safely and nearby residents were also
evacuated from their homes. The nearby Pan Am rail station was closed because
the main water line was on the other side of the train tracks.
A special fund has been
set up for them at the Trustco Bank on Main Street in Hoosick Falls. Just make
a check payable to the "Benefit Fund for the Isherwood/Hurlbert Families."
You can also mail checks to the bank.
