Halesite Responds to Bedroom Fire

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

On the afternoon of Sunday February 14, 2016, the Halesite Fire Department was called by 911 dispatcher with a report of a bedroom fire on Cove Rd. The fire was advanced and vented upon arrival, with fire extending to the front and back of the building and also to the second floor. While the fire is still under investigation, preliminary information points to a candle that started the fire. Five residents had self-evacuated the home and two were transported by Halesite FD Rescue to Huntington Hospital. Approximately 50 firefighters battled the blaze and provided rescue efforts led by Chief Greg Colonna, and Assistant Chief's James Magerle and Dominic Spada. Mutual Aid was requested from Huntington, Centerport, and Northport Fire Departments. Huntington Manor Fire Department stood-by at Halesite's headquarters along with Cold Spring Harbor Fire Department Rescue.
