Late on the night of Monday, April 6th, 2020 Westbury firefighters along with mutual aid units operated on the scene of a working fire on Maple Avenue off Post Avenue. The fire began in or around a vehicle between 321 Maple Avenue [a two and a half story private dwelling with an attached two-story multiple dwelling behind it] and 325 Maple Avenue [a two and a half story private dwelling]. The main fire building [321 Maple Avenue] had extension to the second floor and attic. The damage to the other structure involved appeared to be cosmetic with no extension to the interior. Hicksville was designated the FAST and responded to the scene with Ladder 931 which set up in a parking lot on exposure two. Also, on scene were units from Jericho, Carle Place, and East Meadow. The main body of fire was quickly knocked down and extension was kept to a minimum. Three hand lines were stretched with at least two hand lines put into operation. All searches were negative, and the scene was placed under control within forty minutes. The cause of the fire is under investigation and all fire department units were under the command of Westbury Chief of Department Kenny Gass .
