The fire service can be challenging, as well as rewarding. I believe that no matter how long you are a member (and I have been a member since 1968), you can never say, "I have seen it all!" While many alarms are routine, eventually you use your training and skills to cope with a situation that you have not encountered before.

Firefighters extinguished a dryer fire at a Huntington residence on Saturday, July 5, officials said.

Halesite Fire Department volunteers were called to extinguish a fire at a home on Chuck Hollow Court. The fire began in a clothes dryer and extended to the laundry room, according to officials.

Nearly 40 firefighters using five trucks had the blaze under control within a half hour. Officials say the fire was contained to the laundry room with smoke damage throughout the home.

The Huntington Fire Department assisted with an additional engine at the scene, with a Centerport Fire Department crew on standby. Units were under the command of Halesite Fire Chief Dan McConnell, and Assistant Chiefs Greg Colonna and Jamie Magerle. Suffolk Fire Rescue Coordinators were also dispatched to the scene.

There were no injuries reported, and the Huntington Fire Marshal is investigating.
