Recently, Thomas Corners firefighters battled a major explosion and fire at an asphalt company on Freeman’s Bridge Road in the town of Glenville. An airport crash truck from nearby Stratton Air Guard Base responded and pumped hundreds of gallons of foam to contain the massive fire that was threatening three large storage tanks. Two workers were taken to Westchester Medical Center where they succumbed to their injuries just days later.
