BAY SHORE, NY - On Saturday, September 24th at approximately 12:48 P.M., the Bay Shore FD, Bay Shore-Brightwaters Rescue Ambulance, and Suffolk County PD were dispatched to the Boulton Center located at 37 West Main Street, between Maple Avenue and South Park Street, for a reported building collapse.
First arriving units found the awning of the building collapsed. Mutual Aid was provided by Islip FD, East Islip FD, Islip Terrace FD, Bohemia FD, and Lakeland FD for technical rescue teams. A building rep and the Islip Town Fire Marshal were requested to secure the building and deem it safe or unsafe. Fire crews made entry to the building to secure the power to it.
