CORAM, NY - Coram firefighters were activated for a car fire with propane leak at Cty. Rd. 83 and Pine Rd. during the early evening hours of December 18, 2021. One occupant was helped by a passing firefighter, who was unable to get to the second occupant as the van became fully engulfed as Coram firefighters arrived on scene. The second occupant (a female) was found dead just before the back doors inside the van. Firefighters used hand lines and a deck gun to extinguish the blaze. A propane tank was removed from the van, but it was unknown if it was involved in the fire.
