 Story and Photos by Ex-Captain Steve Grogan

On Tuesday evening September 12, 2006, at 8:28 PM, the Lynbrook Fire Department, under the command of Chief Keith Festa, responded to a reported house fire at 263 Earle Avenue.   Heavy smoke was observed coming from the front closed in porch area of the house.  The house was empty as it had been reportedly newly purchased and under renovation.  Truck Company, followed by Vulcan Engine 2, was first on the scene.  Vulcan firefighters stretched one hose line to the house while a second was stretched with the help of Engine Company members.   Firefighters found that a pile of construction material and garbage inside the front door was burning and had spread to the front wall.  Members of Truck Company took out the front porch window and pulled down new sheetrock in the porch area to make sure the fire had not spread into the walls.  A hose line was used to extinguished the fire and wet down the porch area.  Damage, estimated at about $6000, was confined to the front wall of the porch.  Firefighters were on the scene for about one hour.
