Kings Park assists Northport FD with house fire.

Posted 7/22/2019

At 12:48 AM Monday July 22, 2019 Northport FD responded to multiple calls reporting a residential structure fire at 62 Annetta Ave, Northport. Callers indicated a large fire with flames visible from the home and popping noises. 

1st Asst. Chief Dennis Sheridan arrived first on scene and confirmed the working fire on the first floor of a two story single family home. All occupants had self evacuated. Under the direction of Chief of Department, John Jacobsen, Northport firefighters arrived with two engines, a tower ladder, a rescue truck and two ambulances. 

Mutual aid was requested from the following departments:

East Northport FD - 1 Engine and 1 Paramedic, 1 Asst Chief
Kings Park FD - 1 Truck and 1 Ambulance 1 Asst Chief
Centerport FD 1 Engine and 26 MD
Halesite FD 1 Engine 1 Ambulance
Greenlawn FD 1 Engine

First arriving units had water on the fire and all fire was reportedly extinguished at 1:13 AM. During extensive salvage and overhauling operations, one Centerport firefighter became overheated and weak. The firefighter was transported to Huntington hospital for evaluation.

The fire is under investigation by the SCPD Arson Squad and Northport Village Fire Marshal. The excessive heat made the overhaul of the fire a difficult task. Many thanks to the mutual aid departments for their assistance. Good job by all.
