On January 21, 2017, Nassau Hose firefighters of Rensselaer County responded to a report of a cellar fire in the village. The call was dispatched as a second alarm. On arrival, Nassau found a well-established fire spreading from the basement to the first floor. Schodack Valley, Tsatsawassa, Averill Park and Valatie arrived with tankers. Two openings were made to evacuate the thick smoke hampering interior crews. The homeowner was a chief of Nassau, who asked for a second alarm when he reported the incident.
