NORTH AMITYVILLE, NY - On the night of July 18th, the North Amityville Fire Company responded to a Signal 23 for a commercial fire at 756 Route 110 (Michelle's 110 Diner).

1-7-31 was the first responding chief and 1-0-0 advised him that it was a front dining room smoke detector. The next responding chief was 1-7-30 and 1-0-0 advised him that a 9-1-1 caller stated that black smoke was coming from the roof. 1-7-30 then advised 1-0-0 to upgrade to a Signal 13.

1-7-31 advised 1-7-30 that a truck company was needed and confirmed black smoke coming from the vents on the roof. 1-7-30 asked 1-0-0 to mutual aid a truck company in, which brought South Farmingdale. Once 1-7-30 arrived on scene he confirmed a fire at a stove and asked for a mutual aid engine. Once 1-7-1 was Signal 2, 1-7-31 advised them to pull in to the back side of the lot. Soon after, 1-7-30 advised to 1-0-0 a Working Signal 13. 1-0-0 had then mutual aided Copiague for the RIT team (1-3-3).

At 8:17 P.M., 1-7-30 advised that the main body of fire was knocked. Mutual aids were from South Farmingdale, Amityville, Copiague and East Farmingdale. Chief of the Department Thomas Nelson had command.
