 Story by Ex-Captain Steve Grogan and Photos by Firefighter Brian Grogan

On Saturday, March 8, 2008, the Hewlett Fire Department requested a mutual aid response from Lynbrook’s Truck Company 428 at a Signal 10 house fire on Barr Avenue in Woodmere.  Truck Company members, led by Chief Robert Occhipinti and Second Deputy Chief Kevin Bien, assisted with the overhaul of the house in which one person was found dead in a bedroom.  

Newsday reported that three dogs also died in the house.  The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshal and the NCPD’s Arson and Bomb Squad.  Lynbrook was on the scene for about two hours. 

Additional fire departments assisting at the scene or on stand-by included Woodmere, Lawrence-Cedarhurst, Inwood, East Rockaway, and Valley Stream.
