COPIAGUE, NY - At approximately 5:35 A.M. on July 13th,the Copiague Fire Department was alerted for smoke showing from a house on Howard Avenue, off of Audley Court and Abbington Court. 

The first responding chief was 3rd Asst. Chief Orlando (1-3-33); Babylon Central Fire Alarm advised him that they were taking multiple calls on the fire. Upon his arrival, he had smoke showing and then proceeded to transmit the working fire.

Once Eagle Engine 1-3-10 arrived on the scene, they stretched the initial attack line for the fire in the two-story private dwelling. With the Lindenhurst TRUCK being the first due truck company, they performed searches and opened up alongside Copiague Rescue 1-3-3.

With an urgent message of the first-floor on the three side being compromised, all crews were ordered out of the dwelling. Once all crews were out of the dwelling, they regrouped and went back inside, avoiding the compromised portion to complete overhaul and wetdown. Multiple hand lines were put into operation off of Engine 1-3-10 to knock the fire.

Mutual aid consisted of the Lindenhurst FD for a Truck (TL1-6-4), the Amityville FD for an Engine (E1-1-3), North Lindenhurst FD for the Rapid Intervention Team (TL1-11-4), and an ambulance. Units operated under Chief of Copiague Fire Department, Kyle Miller (1-3-30). There were no reported injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
