CENTEREACH, NY - An early afternoon fire was reported at 6 Dixie Lane on June 16th. Upon arrival, firefighters were met with thick brown smoke coming from the eaves of the roof, but no visible flames. Firefighters stretched hand lines and began an aggressive search for the fire, which was located in the attic. Firefighters knocked down all visible fire and were surprised to find that it was not a contents fire, but only rafters and the floor of the attic that was on fire. Two dogs were removed to safety from the back of the home. One dog was carried out by Suffolk County Police Officer Deleonardo to a family member across the street.
