OLD GREENWICH - The first responders who helped extinguish a massive Old Greenwich fire during Hurricane Sandy spoke exclusively with News 12 today to mark the one-year anniversary.

The blaze ignited on Binney Lane and quickly spread to three homes. Firefighters say they were unable to attack the flames fast enough due to the extreme weather conditions. Crews say they were working against 90 mph winds, rough surf and horizontal rain.

Another issue firefighters confronted that night was a lack of water for their hoses.

No one was hurt during the ordeal, and firefighters say they're still beyond thankful for that.
