Veteran Troy firefighter retires

TROY — Firefighter Thomas Blake III was surrounded by fellow members of the Troy Fire Department Wednesday at the Engine 6 Fire House at Canal Avenue and Third Street in South Troy as he worked his final assigned shift in his 27-year career.

Blake is retiring from one of the city’s busiest firehouses leaving behind friends, his brother Firefighter Bill Blake and his son Thomas Blake IV to continue working on the job.

Looking back on his nearly three-decade career, Blake, 55, said, “It’s changed. Definitely busier.”
