On April 12, 2015, the Spring Valley Fire Department was dispatched to Robert Pitt Drive for a reported structure fire. First arriving units reported heavy fire in a first-floor bedroom in an apartment, which was quickly spreading to adjoining apartments. Fire crews entered and made an aggressive interior attack to knock down the fire. Two exterior truck crews set up in the rear to tackle the heavy fire coming from the roof and vent the structure. Four units were destroyed, but many were saved. Close to 100 firefighters from Spring Valley, Hillcrest, Tallman, Monsey, and South Spring Valley responded to the scene.
