Fire Department Responds to House Fire


On March 30, 2023 at 6:42 p.m. the city Fire Department was dispatched to the report of a structure fire at 9 North White Street. The first companies arrived on scene at 6:45 p.m. and found fire coming from multiple windows on the second floor of a two-and-a-half story residential house. Members were immediately notified that all occupants were reported to be out of the building.

Crews made an aggressive interior attack on the second floor fire and primary searches of the entire building were conducted with negative results. Initial indications were that fire had possibly extended to the attic. Crews pushed to the attic and found no fire extension. The initial attack team were able to hold the fire to the original room of origin, preventing further fire extension. At 7:10 p.m all visible fire was extinguished  and the fire was put under control by Command. The Fire Department remained on the scene conducting salvage, overhaul and investigation. The last units cleared the scene at 10:01 p.m..

The building was posted as uninhabitable by the Building Department due to the fire, smoke and water damage. Central Hudson disconnected the power and gas supplying the building. The two residents of the building were able to relocate without assistance. The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.

Additional support was provided by the Arlington Fire District, Fairview Fire District, Mobile life Support Services, City of Poughkeepsie 911 Center, City of Poughkeepsie Police Department, City of Poughkeepsie Building Department, Central Hudson and the ATF. The City of Poughkeepsie Fire Department would like to thank all agencies for their assistance
