News12 Story


Arson investigators have told News 12 that a car fire at the Anchor Audi dealership on Friday morning, May 11, 2012, was arson. Lynbrook firefighters responded to the scene shortly after 1 AM for a reported car fire on the Anchor dealership lot on Sunrise Highway, west of Bixley Heath, in Lynbrook. Lynbrook police officers were first on the scene and found a working car fire. As the burning brand-new Audi convertible was parked next to the building the original car fire response was upgraded by Chief Anthony DeCarlo to a general alarm bringing all apparatus to the scene. Tally-Ho arrived first and stretched to the hydrant on the corner and used one line and a back-up to control the fully involved vehicle. It was out in about 15 minutes but firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and half. The Nassau County Fire Marshal's Office and the NCPD Arson Squad responded to the scene. When firefighters had left the scene investigators had not yet looked at the video surveillance cameras on the building. Those videos allegedly showed two male individuals attempting to break into the car one hour earlier, but they ran off when the car alarm went off. At about 1 AM they returned and set the car on fire. Police are looking for the two males who escaped in a white van.
