Teamwork at Working Car
Story & photos by Ex Captain Steven Grogan
Lynbrook firefighters, under the command of Chief John
Chavatte, along with neighboring Rockville Centre firefighters
teamed up to extinguish a working car fire on Merrick Road just east
of Ocean Avenue on the evening of June 26, 2016. A male driving a
Jeep and heading west on Merrick Road and approaching the Lynbrook
line escaped from his burning vehicle leaving it in the roadway
after the engine caught on fire. After the chiefs arrived on
the scene and a working fire was broadcast, Truck Company was the
first to arrival and almost put the fire out with two water can
before RVCFD arrived and extinguished the fire with a hose line.
Traffic was stopped westbound on Merrick Road for about 40 minutes.
