**Immediate Press Release**
On Wednesday December 30th at 1054 Hrs Kenilworth Chief Anthony Marano reported to fire dispatch a working fire at the corner of Moore Ave and Niagara Falls Blvd. Chief Marano asked for the daytime mutual aid companies of Ellwood FD and Brighton FD along with the FAST team of Kenmore FD and a ladder truck from Sheridan Park FD. Once on location Chief Marano reported a shed fire behind the house, spreading to the house. Kenilworth 1st Assistant Chief Josh Strauss, Kenilworth 2nd Assistant Chief Ryan Schneggenburger and Ellwood 1st Assistant Chief Brian Nigro all were on location within minutes of the initial dispatch. Chief Strauss assumed the role of command. First in pumper, Kenilworth Engine 2 and its crew were also on location within a few minutes of dispatch. Chief Marano took Engine 2’s crew inside to start fire suppression on the second floor. Chief Marano was reporting heavy heat and heavy smoke on the second floor trying to locate the fire. Chief Schneggenburger and Chief Nigro pulled a second and started attacking the fire in the back of the house and the shed. Chief Schneggenburger reported an explosion and discovered multiple propane tanks that were fueling the fire and high winds were pushing the fire toward the rear of the structure. Chief Schneggenburger took the second arriving crew into the first floor and started working the first floor fire. More arriving crews on location were able to enter the structure and assist extinguishing the fire while checking for extension and overhaul.
The fire on the first floor was reported out in roughly 35 minutes of dispatch. The second floor and attic was reported out roughly 45 minutes after dispatch.

The fire is under investigation

Mutual aid companies that responded were Ellwood FD, Brighton FD, Kenmore FD (FAST), Sheridan Park FD, Eggertsville FD (2nd FAST), North Bailey (Hall Fill).
Cheif Marano would like to thank everyone who came to help.

Kenilworth will be out escorting Santa around the Kenilworth fire district on Christmas Eve starting at 11am. We will be starting in the north end of the district and working our way south.

12/08/2020

Attention Residents of Kenilworth:
We have been talking back and forth with the North Pole and are happy to announce Santa will be making his annual trip to Kenilworth on Christmas Eve. Santa doesn't have to worry about COVID, but our fire department personnel still do and as a result things will look a little different this year. In order to keep everyone safe we wont be making any stops or handing out candy like we have in the past. We will still be driving around the district and will have updates about the route and times in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Thank you!!!
Thank you for your hard work on the fire on Westgate Road in Kenmore yesterday. You kept the fire from spreading which saved my daughter's home only one more down from the fire. We are very thankful to you all!
Come & check out the trucks, the fire house, live demonstrations as well as meet our firefighters!!
Congratulations Kenilworth Vol. Fire Co. # 1 on 100 years of service to your community. I only wished I could have brought up my father, Richard Bromley Sr., Past member, as well as myself, former Torchboy & firefighting career stated at Kenilworth. Are there any momentous from the celebration, we could get, like shirts, hats, or patches ? I will put it with the copy of the printed program from the 50th years of service celebration.
With great sadness, I announce the passing of Kenilworth Life Member and my father Fred Jelonek, in Franklin, TN on February 28th. He was 95 years old. Services will be held at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home. He always had fond memories of the fire hall and his fellow volunteers. I always remember him running furiously around the Grandview corner whenever he heard the siren.
Congrats on 100 years.
Congratulations on your Anniversary.
