Smith Street [12-15-14]

Late on the night of Monday, December 15th, 2014 the Uniondale Fire Department was dispatched to a reported house fire at 867 Smith Street off of Nostrand Avenue. Responding units were advised by Nassau County Fire Communications that at least two calls had been received reporting the fire followed by a report that Nassau County Police were on scene with a working fire. Uniondale Chief of Department Jean Laurent [7500] was one of the first to arrive on scene and was met with heavy fire inside of a two story private dwelling prompting him to transmit a signal ten [working fire]. Uniondale Engine 7522 was the first engine company to arrive on scene and went on to stretch and operate three lines. As the fire raged mutual aid was called to the scene and to standby to assist Uniondale. On scene was Roosevelt Engine 737 and Ambulance 736, Hempstead Ladder 2 along with ambulances from the South Hempstead and North Merrick Fire Departments. North Bellmore was notified for the FAST upon the transmission of the working fire and responded with Ladder 657. Upon arrival North Bellmore members were immediately put to work and the new FAST became Ladder 617 from East Meadow. Late into the operation members of East Meadow were also put to work. Standing by for Uniondale during the operation was West Hempstead Heavy Rescue 762 and Ladder 765, Franklin Square and Munson Engine 712, and Westbury Ambulance 9611. It is believed that the fire began in the laundry room in the basement before extending up to the second floor; however, the cause of the fire remains under investigation. All fire department units were under the command of Uniondale Chief of Department Jean Laurent [7500]. Video from the scene: https://youtu.be/6IX6gVo3hRc
