**Hydrants did not work and are not the responsibility of the Fire Department. This caused our tankers to have to go to the local boat ramp to resupply. There was no way to get enough hose to the Ohio river to draft at the scene. It looks close but it was not close enough for water supply** Car 8501 responding to a two-story residential structure fire. Crews from Milton, Madison, Madison Township, Westside, and Bedford assisted at the scene. Fire operations were hindered by several factors including high winds contributing to flame spread, structure type being all wood panel, and city hydrants not operating for tanker shuttle operations. This was a weekend home and nobody was currently staying in the residence. Trimble County EMS and the Trimble County Sheriff’s Department assisted at the scene as well.
