Firefighter Injured in Rockland County Quarry Blaze

A firefighter sustained minor injuries on Tuesday while tackling a massive blaze at the Tilcon quarry facility. Due to the absence of nearby hydrants, first responders had to employ an extensive team effort to fill two 9,000-gallon tankers to combat the flames.

The origin of the fire has been traced to a conveyor belt used for transporting materials to a crusher tower at the facility. Authorities have declared the tower a complete loss.

Witnesses reported that the smoke emanating from the site was so dense that it was visible from various parts of Rockland and even as far away as northwest Westchester County, across the Hudson River.

Tilcon representatives have confirmed that all employees are safe and accounted for. The investigation into the exact cause of the fire is ongoing.
