Mutual Aid To Valley Stream
Story & photos by Ex Captain Steven Grogan
On Monday, November 14, 2016, the Lynbrook Fire Department was
called on a mutual aid to assist the Valley Stream Fire
Department for a working house fire at 34 E. Hawthorne Street
shortly after 6:30 AM. Allegedly, the homeowners 10-year
old daughter made the phone call to report the kitchen was on
fire. The child's mother doesn't speak English and the
father was at work. The mother, the 10 year old, and her
brother escaped out a first-floor window. Lynbrook's Truck
Company and the Emergency Medical Company were not called to the
scene but stood-by at VSFD Headquarters on Rockaway Avenue.
VS firefighters used one hose line through the back door to put
out the kitchen fire in the rear of the house on the first
floor. They stopped the fire before it spread to the rest
of the two-story house. It was not known how the
fire started but it was not considered suspicious.
