A vacant building located at 197 First St. caught fire on July 19. Firefighters from several local departments joined forces to douse the blaze. A City of Newburgh firefighter sprained a knee battling the flames. The cause of the three-alarm fire is still under investigation, City of Newburgh Assistant Fire Chief Robert Bain said. The main body of the fire was “knocked down” in approximately one hour, Bain said. Several fire departments responded to the scene and helped the City of Newburgh Fire Department put out the fire, including: Cronomer Valley, Middle Hope, Vails Gate, Castle Point, West Point, Good-Will, New Windsor, and Beacon. Coldenham and Orange Lake manned the fire headquarters.
