At 04:27 hours on the morning of Monday, November 19th, 2018 the Hempstead Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a fire at 60 Newmans Court. Responding fire department units were advised by Fire Alarm Central that two calls were received reporting a fire at the location. When firefighters arrived on scene, they were met with smoke showing from a one-story commercial building housing a laundry company. Upon further investigation firefighters found a dryer fire with extension to the roof of the building leading to the transmission of a working fire. The fire went on to reach a multi-alarm equivalency. Among the mutual aid departments called either to the scene or to standby were Freeport, South and West Hempstead, Roosevelt, Uniondale, Rockville Centre, Franklin Square, and Elmont among others. The cause of the fire is under investigation and all fire department units were under the command of Hempstead Chief of Department Giardino .
