East Northport Fire Department Battles Blaze in Attached Garage
The East Northport Fire Department responded to a Working Residential Structure Fire on Arleigh Road on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 4:21 p.m. Under the command of Chief Dan Flanagan and Chief Tom Bourne, crews worked to extinguish a heavy fire in an attached garage of a private home.
Due to the quick actions of firefighters, the blaze was extinguished with minimal extension to other areas of the structure and property damage was kept to a minimum. The scene was deemed under control in 40 minutes. One civilian was evaluated by EMS at the scene for smoke inhalation.
ENFD operated with 11 pieces of apparatus as well as the Cyanide Response Team provided by Paramedics from the Dix Hills Fire Department, Greenlawn Fire Department and Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
Mutual aid was provided by the Kings Park Fire Department with a FAST team at the scene and the Northport Fire Department to stand by with an engine and ambulance to handle additional alarms.
