Manorville NY. – On Sunday May 3rd 2020 at about 4:42 PM the Manorville Fire Department was activated for a brush fire On North street Near Wading River Rd. On arrival Chief Lindberg advised units to stage at the church on Wading River Rd while he and his assistant chiefs worked to get a better location. A short time later Lindberg had located the fire and requested units to come down north street near where they had responded to some previous fires. Engine 9 responded along with 2 GI’s.
The Gi’s were sent into the wooded area and made an aggressive attack. Due to this aggressive attack they were able to prevent the fire from spreading out of control and keep it to about an acre and a half. This area has had several fires from Mid April to Mid May the Forest service and NYS DEC is currently investigating the cause of these multiple fires.
