A North New Hyde Park family is safe after fire broke out in the basement of their home on Rose Lane Sunday morning, authorities said.
After receiving reports of “smoke coming from the basement” at 10:21 a.m., Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department responded.
Chief of Department Farrone arrived first and reported “smoke showing." Firefighters responded quickly to the working fire.
The first engine to respond stretched a hose line into the basement. The crew quickly extinguished the main body of fire, which was located in several bays of the basement’s ceiling across two separate rooms. A second hose line was stretched to the first floor where there was minor extension, while other crews opened up the basement ceiling and walls to check for additional extension.
The New Hyde Park Fire Department responded to the scene as the Firefighter Assist and Search Team (F.A.S.T.). The Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office are investigating the cause of the fire.
The owners self-evacuated without injuries and there were no injuries to any firefighters.
Chief Farrone declared the incident under control within 30 minutes and all units were released in a little over an hour.
With special thanks to Kirk Candan.
