Shortly after 6pm on Tuesday September 2, 2014 Newtown Hook & Ladder responded to assist Sandy Hook Fire Department for a reported structure fire on Alpine Circle. Arriving crews from Hook & Ladder on Ladder Truck 114 and Engine 1 went to working stretching a hand-line to the basement and sending a crew to the roof for vertical ventilation if needed. After the fire was extinguished Hook & Ladder crews assisted with overhaul, checking for hidden fires on the first floor and in the basement. Members remained on the scene for just under two hours before returning.
