Suffolk County Police entered the smoke filled house before the fire department arrived and stated that they could not find any victims. Upon the arrival of Vigilant Engine Co. Engine 1-3-5, they stretched a one-and-three-quarter inch line to the front door and began a fire attack. The fire was located in a bedroom on the ½ corner.
