MASTIC BEACH, NY - On Saturday, August 12th at about 8:30 A.M., the Mastic Beach FD was activated for a report of a car fire at the Lucky Deli on Mastic Beach Rd., at the intersection of Cypress Dr. and Pine Rd.

Mastic Beach Chief Jeff McGown (5-13-30) arrived on scene first due and advised Fire-Com that he had a working car fire and needed a reactivation for additional crews. First due Engine 5-13-9 was the first into the scene and arrived a short time after Chief McGown. Two lines were quickly stretched off the rig and put into operation. Upon arrival, the crew from Tanker 2 5-13-2 went to work assisting the crew of Engine 9 in putting water on the fire. The fire was able to be quickly knocked down without any extension to the building.

Fire Police and Suffolk County Police 7th Precinct officers blocked the roads and diverted traffic while firefighters operated on scene. All units were back in service in about 40 minutes, and the scene was turned over to Suffolk Police who waited on scene for the tow truck.
