North Bellport N.Y. – On Friday May 6, 2022, at 5:12 PM the Hagerman Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire on Kyle St off Malcom St. Firecom advised incoming responders that callers were stating an attached garage was on fire. On arrival of the first due chief a working fire was transmitted. Mutual aid began to quickly be requested to the scene from North Patchogue and Medford to assist.

The first due engine crews quickly began to hit the fire with tank water from handlines stretched. Though the occupants were home at the time all searches were determined to be complete and negative as the occupants were able to get out of the home. The fire was knocked down relatively quick. Companies conducted overhaul. Chief of Department Tom Dunham was in command of the incident. South Country ambulance was also on scene to assist. No injuries were reported and the Brookhaven Town Fire Marshal was notified for assistance in investigating the cause of the fire.
