MANORVILLE, NY - At approximately 1:30 A.M. on May 16th, police and fire officials responded to reports of a house fire on Frontier Trail, off Bauer Ave. The first responding chief arrived on scene to find the garage of the home well involved. The chief radioed back to Fire Rescue Dispatch and requested to reactivate his department for additional manpower and start the mutual aid plan to the scene. Two lines were stretched and placed into operation. The occupants were able to make it out of the home, which was confirmed by firefighters. Mutual aid was sent to assist on scene and with standby crews from East Moriches, Center Moriches, Ridge, Yaphank, Brookhaven, Eastport and Wading River. Mastic was also requested, but later cancelled. Firefighters worked the scene for over an hour-and-a-half due to extensive overhaul. The scene was turned over to the Brookhaven Fire Marshal's office and SCPD Arson Squad to investigate.
