NORTH LINDENHURST, NY - On October 9th, the North Lindenhurst FD responded to reports of a building fire at the Checkers on Sunrise Highway off North Greene Avenue.

Upon the arrival of Suffolk County Police sector cars, they advised there was active fire. The officer on first due Engine 1-11-1 transmitted the working fire and they then proceeded to lay in from the hydrant on North Greene and stretched a two-and-a-half inch line to the front door.

Once crews gained entry into the commercial restaurant, they quickly knocked down the fire and commenced overhaul. The crew from 1-11-2 stretched a second line off 1-11-1 and made entry on the 3 side of the building.

Mutual aid was requested from Lindenhurst FD for the first RIT (1-6-4), Copiague FD for an additional RIT, West Babylon FD for one Engine from Zone 2, and East Farmingdale Fire Co. for a Ladder (1-5-15), and an ambulance. Command held with just Lindenhurst from the mutual aid. Units operated under command of Chief of the North Lindenhurst FD, Kenneth Stallone (1-11-30). The cause of the fire is under investigation and there were no reported injuries.
