CENTEREACH, NY - Just before 5:00 P.M. on April 26th, the Centereach FD was activated for a structure fire at 16 Main Street, off Pond Path. A huge smoke column could be seen for several miles. The responding chief activated a working fire as heavy flames were showing from the first and second floors, and he immediately started mutual aid from Setauket, Stony Brook, Selden for class A Engines, Tower ladders and ambulances to the scene. The home, which was for sale, was completely gutted on the inside on both floors, leaving only the frame of the house standing. Town of Brookhaven fire marshals responded to investigate the blaze.
