CFD Assists Niverville House Fire

Your CFD volunteers at the fire in Niverville on Thursday, August 12, 2021, moving roughly 500,000 gallons of water to the fire trucks fighting the fire. Close to two dozen fire departments from Columbia County and Rensselaer County battled a house fire sparked by lightning in the Niverville Fire District. The violent afternoon storms and high temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s did not help firefighters on scene. Luckily, there were no injuries.
