Schuyler Heights was called to the Citgo gas station on Broadway for a structure fire. Upon arrival the first chief requested mutual aid from Menands, Watervliet Arsenal, Latham, Verdoy, Shaker Road, West Albany and Boght. An Amazon trailer that was behind Dawson’s Body Shop was fully engulfed and the fire had spread to more than 12 vehicles on their lot. Firefighters had a hard time accessing the area due to power lines overhead. The departments helped protect the two adjacent buildings. The cause was determined to be from the local homeless man who was trying to warm up a can of beans under the trailer, which accidentally caught one of the tires on fire igniting the rest of the trailer.
