Handicap man escapes Brewster house fire, firefighters treated for heat exhaustion

The Brewster Fire Department has released more details about a fire that happened Wednesday afternoon on Shore Drive.  Firefighters were notified that the resident was handicapped and they found the man in his wheelchair at the top of his driveway, safely away from the burning home. Brewster firefighters made an aggressive interior attack, but were forced out when the roof collapsed.  Due to the extreme hot weather conditions, medics and EMTs from Ambulunz were on hand to rehab firefighters as they exited the building. Other than heat exhaustion, no firefighters were injured. The house located at the bottom of a long driveway on the shores of Lake Tonetta suffered significant damage.  With no fire hydrants in the area water had to be pumped from the lake. Firefighters cleared the scene shortly after 8pm.
