On January 6, 2018, Mount Vernon firefighters worked a stubborn three-alarm fire on Mount Vernon Avenue. Firefighters had trouble finding and then getting access to where the fire was located in the two-story commercial building. A frozen hydrant hindered efforts and then the winds picked up, dropping the temperatures and making it a tough day on the fireground. Once access was gained crews made a quick knockdown.
