Coram, NY - At 4:46 A.M. on December 29, 2020, Selden firefighters were alerted to a reported house fire at 14 Linden St., off Old Town Rd. Firefighters arrived to a fully engulfed home. Selden Fire Chief Jonathan Eck was in charge, confirmed that all occupants were out, and started a mutual aid response from multiple departments. Crews were able to get the blaze under control, but not before the home was a total loss. Firefighters made entry into the house, but had to be pulled out after a partial roof collapse which prompted them to switch to an exterior operation. It's unknown if any pets (possible cats) were able to get out. No injuries were reported.
