CORAM, NY - Just after 11:30 P.M. on October 4th, Coram firefighters responded to a historic building at 325 Middle Cty. Rd. for reports of a structure fire. On arrival firefighters found the building, which was once owned by Revolutionary War Captain Nathaniel Norton, fully engulfed in flames. The building, which has been abandoned for several years, was in the process of trying to get federal funds by historic groups to restore it. SCPD Arson Squad and Town of Brookhaven Fire Marshals responded to investigate. The building had to be bulldozed, as it was completely destroyed.
