On Monday afternoon at approximately 3:45pm the Sayville Fire Department was activated for a structure fire on Harp Lane. During the response Chief 31 was advised by a member on scene that it was a working fire. Chief 31 immediately advised dispatch to re-activate the alarm as a working fire which would automatically start a pre-planned mutual aid response.
Chief 31 arrived on scene soon after and encountered a heavy fire condition showing out a couple of windows on the 2nd floor as well as consuming the front of the house. Within approximately 6 minutes from the initial activation of the alarm, the Department had Chiefs 31 & 32, 2 engines, 1 ladder and a Safety vehicle along with 20 Sayville volunteer firefighters on scene. The crews immediately secured a water supply, stretched 2 hose lines, placed numerous ladders on the building and began a search for victims. The first hose line briefly hit the fire on the exterior and then entered the building to make an aggressive interior attack. The fire was rapidly knocked down and extinguished with searches for victims being negative.
In addition to the initial units mentioned, the Sayville Fire Department had 4 additional units respond and operated with a total of 45 Sayville volunteer firefighters. The Holbrook Fire Department responded with one engine to the scene as part of our weekday automatic response plan. The Bayport Fire Department responded with one engine to the scene to stand by as the Rapid Intervention Team should a firefighter become injured or trapped. The West Sayville and Bohemia Fire Departments were requested to provide stand by coverage for the District in the event any other alarms were received with West Sayville being moved up to the scene to provide a relief crew. The Sayville Community Ambulance Company provided medical stand by coverage at the scene.
There were no reported injuries to any residents or firefighters, but two cats and a bird were removed from the residence by firefighters. The fire is under routine investigation by the Suffolk County Police Arson Squad and the Town of Islip Fire Marshals office in order to determine a cause.
