Falling Tree Hits House and Propane Truck in Lloyd Harbor
The Huntington Fire Department was dispatched to the Village of Lloyd Harbor on Monday, April 10, 2017, at 1:10 p.m. for a report of wires and a tree down on a propane truck on West Neck Road near Pheasant Drive. When units arrived they found a large tree had come down and struck a house and a propane truck that was in the driveway making a delivery. The large tree was resting on both the house and truck, and no electrical wires were involved. Huntington firefighters secured the scene with the Lloyd Harbor Police Department, and also checked the truck for any leaks and the tank for damage. None were found and a tree service was dispatched to remove the tree safely. There were no injuries reported. One Huntington Fire Department engine responded under the command of Assistant Chief Rob Conroy assisted by Deputy Chiefs Brian Keane and Scott Dodge.
