MASTIC BEACH, NY - On the morning of Wednesday, March 24th after 11:00 A.M., the Mastic Beach FD and Mastic Beach Ambulance Company were dispatched to a reported house fire on Cranberry Dr., between Elm Road West and Forest Road West.

On arrival, Assistant Chief McGown {5-13-31} found flames coming from the side of the home. He assisted the first due crews in stretching lines to the side of the home, and requested mutual aid to the scene.

County activated Mastic FD for an engine to the scene and Center Moriches also responded, as well as the RIT team. The fire was knocked down in a relatively short amount of time from when first due units got on scene, however there appeared to be extensive overhaul needed.

No injuries were reported, however both Mastic Beach Ambulance and Shirley Ambulance were on scene to provide rehab and other support services as needed.

The scene was turned over to the Brookhaven Town Fire Marshal's Office.
