Firefighters Battle Stubborn Oak Street House Fire
At 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9, Chief William Watts of the Floral Park Volunteer Fire Department responded to an investigation for wires burning on a pole in front of an Oak Street residence. Upon his arrival, the wire from the pole to 201 Oak Street had burnt through and was on the ground. Nothing out of the ordinary but any firefighter will tell you "no two fires are the same." Ex-Chief Lou Scilabba was also on the scene and Chief Watts checked the house as a precaution. Upon noticing a slight haze in the attached garage, Chief Watts requested Fire Com to alert the Floral Park Volunteer Fire Department of a general alarm - all units were requested to respond.
