Eastern Parkway [5-22-14]


Minutes into May 22nd the Baldwin Fire Department was dispatched to 3139 Eastern Parkway [on the corner of Hayes Place] for a report of a car fire. As fire department units began responding they were advised that the car had extended to the home as per Nassau County Police on scene. With this information the alarm was upgraded to a general alarm response. When the first units arrived on scene they were met with two cars on fire with significant extension to the home nearby – the signal ten [working fire] was immediately transmitted. Baldwin Engine 202 was the first engine company to arrive on scene and stretched at least three lines off of their rig while second due Engine 201 stretched at least one line of their own. Baldwin Ladder 206 was the first truck company to arrive on scene and was able to take to the front of the home. When the working fire was transmitted Freeport was notified for the FAST and sent Tiller 218 to the scene. Members of Freeport Truck Company were put to work during the operation due to the fire load present. Freeport also sent Engine 211 to standby in Baldwin Headquarters. Mutual aid also consisted of Oceanside Ladder 244 and Engine 246 to the scene with a Hempstead Ladder and Merrick Engine among the units standing by. Within forty-five minutes the main body of fire was knocked down and soon the scene was placed under control. The cause of the fire remained under investigation. All fire department units were under the command of Baldwin Chief of Department Craig Yanantuono [205]. Video from the scene: https://youtu.be/S47Fd_9ehCY
