Story & photos by  Ex Captain Steven Grogan  

On July 3, 2016 at about 12:45 PM, Lynbrook firefighters for a second week in a row responded to the intersection of Merrick Road and Ocean Avenue to extinguish a working car fire.  Chief John Chavatte, upon his arrival, broadcast a "working" car fire at the scene.  Engine Company was first to the scene followed by Truck Company.  Engine Company stretched their booster line and quickly extinguished the fire in a Range Rover while Truck Company assisted with the overhaul of  the vehicle.  The driver told Lynbrook police that he had just register the vehicle and was taking it out for its first ride when a fire started in the engine compartment while driving on Ocean Avenue.  Ocean Avenue was closed for about 45 minutes.
