Fire Report

On March 18, Port Washington Volunteer Fire Department battled a working fire in a two story, multi-family dwelling on North Maryland Ave.
Just after 1:30 that morning the Port Washington Fire Department was alerted for smoke from a house with people trapped by an Uber eats delivery employee. Upon arrival the PWFD was faced with fire on the 1st and 2nd floors. Three hose lines were stretched and 2 were operated. Fire was knocked down and overhauled and primary and secondary searches were performed with negative results. The “trapped” occupants were in a 2nd floor apartment in the adjoining structure and were able to escape when the smoke detectors had woken them.
After all fire was extinguished it was determined that the house was vacant and undergoing renovations. It took an hour and a half to extinguish the fire. After investigation the cause appears to be accidental and non-suspicious.
The Port Washington Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Roslyn Highlands Volunteer Fire Co., Manhasset-Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department, and Plandome Fire Department.
The Great Neck Vigilant Fire Company and Albertson Fire Company stood by in town for any additional alarms. Standby units responded to an automatic fire alarm on Channel Drive which was a malfunction.
All personnel operated under the command of Matt Kerin, Chief of Department.
