Firefighters in Goldens Bridge didn’t have to go far to fight a blaze Monday morning: It broke out in the Goldens Bridge firehouse.
Volunteers rushed to the building shortly after the 9:25 a.m. alarm went out and removed the firetrucks from the building. One firefighter suffered smoke inhalation in the rush to get the vehicles out of the two-story brick structure at 254 Waccabuc Road (Route 138). He was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Within an hour, the fire was “knocked down” and Lewisboro Police Chief Frank Secret said Route 138 would be shut in the area for most of the day in the area of the firehouse.
