Manhasset-Lakeville F.D. Extinguishes Election Day House Fire


On Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 at 6:16PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 3, 4, 5 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to 46-24 Arcadia Lane for a reported house fire. The first unit to arrive on scene reported that there was smoke showing with the homeowner reporting a fire in their basement. Shortly thereafter, a “Signal 10” was transmitted for a working fire in the basement of a 2.5-story private dwelling.

Engine 8740 was the first piece of apparatus on the scene and its crew stretched a 1” ¾ hose line to the basement and knocked down the main body of fire within a few minutes. The fire managed to extend out of the basement via a pipe chase to both the first and second floors of the house. A second 1” ¾ hose line was stretched by the crew of Engine 8735 to extinguish any extension on the two upper floors. The crews of Quint 8728 and Ladder 8743 vented and performed searches on all floors, which were negative with the exception of a dog. An extensive amount of overhaul was performed to ensure that all fire was extinguished and the fire was placed under control within forty minutes.

The Great Neck Vigilant Fire Company provided a F.A.S.T. with Ladder 8312 and the Port Washington Fire Department provided Ambulance 8546 for EMS coverage during the fire. One firefighter was transported with minor injuries, as was one occupant. The Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office was notified for an immediate investigation and is currently investigating the cause of the fire. All units were released from the scene by Deputy Chief Farrone (8705) within one and half hours.

Manhasset-Lakeville F.D. Responds To Two Separate MVA's In Same Location


The Sunday before Veteran’s Day, November 10th, 2013, was a busy day for the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department. The department handled a total of seven alarms throughout the day, including four emergency medical calls and three motor vehicle accidents. At 12:12PM, Companies 3, 5 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to the intersection of the Long Island Expressway South Service Road and Shelter Rock Road for a reported motor vehicle accident with entrapment. Chief of Department Pisani (8702), as well as Deputy Chiefs Farrone (8705), Garrigan (8703) and Kiess (8701) all responded and were advised that Nassau County P.D. units were on scene requesting the Hurst tool to extricate the driver from one of the vehicles involved. Once on scene, the crew of Heavy Rescue 8730 used their extrication equipment to free the trapped driver who was then packaged and transported by Ambulance 8768 to a local area hospital.

About an hour later, at 1:09PM, the same Manhasset-Lakeville Companies were dispatched once again to Shelter Rock Road, this time to the entrance ramp of the Northern State Parkway for a reported overturned automobile. Upon the arrival of the first units, a vehicle was found overturned on its roof and that both occupants had self-extricated. The crew of Ambulance 8768 and a NCPD Ambulance each packaged and transported one patient to local area hospitals, while the crews of Squad 8759 and Heavy Rescue 8730 handled a fuel spill in the roadway.
