CHATHAM — A neighborly call and quick action by firefighters saved Chatham Brewing from an early morning fire.

After receiving a call at 4:49 this morning, County 911 dispatched the Chatham Fire Department and Chatham Rescue to the brewery at 30 Main St. in the village of Chatham for a smoke investigation.

Mutual aid was requested from Ghent, Valatie and Red Rock fire departments.
The fire was contained to an electrical control panel on a chiller/heater unit. There was no damage to the structure and no injuries were reported.

The fire departments were back in service at 6:58 a.m.

According to Chatham Brewing co-owner Tom Crowell, there was a fair amount of smoke, but no damage to the tanks or building. As of 10 a.m., the electricians were at the brewery working to restore power to the compressors and refrigeration, “so we don’t lose any of the beer in the fermenters.”

They won’t be able to brew again until the control panel is replaced and he said he’s “not sure yet how long that will take.”

Crowell is thankful for the fire department, who “responded quickly and prevented it from spreading beyond the panel box.”
