FARMINGDALE, NY - At approximately 2:05 P.M. on June 24th, the East Farmingdale Fire Co. was alerted for a building fire at 1633 New Highway, cross of Conklin Street.

Soon after a working fire was transmitted, a request was made calling in an engine from Farmingdale and a ladder from South Farmingdale. Once 1-5-6 arrived on scene, they used their deck gun to knock down the fire in the transfer facility. With assistance from a payloader, the trash was able to be moved around and it was all able to be wet down.

Mutual aid to the scene consisted of the Farmingdale FD for an engine (E923), the South Farmingdale FD for a ladder (L978), the Melville FD for the rapid intervention team (E2-5-8), and the Wyandanch Wheatly Heights Ambulance Corp for rehab. There were no reported injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation by Long Island Railroad Fire Marshal. Units operated under the Chief of the East Farmingdale Fire Co., Scott Lewis (1-5-30).
