Sean P. McGuire Memorial


On February 14, 1986, at approximately 6:34 PM, the Vails Gate Fire Department responded to a working structure fire at the Two C's Restaurant on Windsor Highway, New Windsor, NY. Upon arrival, one patron was unaccounted for after the building was evacuated. Sean P. McGuire was part of the crew that entered the burning building to search for the missing patron. During the search, the conditions in the building deteriorated rapidly; fire engulfed the building and the search crew. Four Vails Gate firefighters were injured and hospitalized, one civilian died, and firefighter Sean P. McGuire died inside the building while searching for the patron.
