After dispatch Chief Moon was advised by Islip dispatch that the Suffolk County Police Department was on the scene advising an active garage fire.

Islip crews stretched 2 attack hose lines and quickly extinguished the fire while truck crews performed searches and opened up for extension. Islip crews battled the freezing temperatures which caused a major icing condition at the scene. Mutual aid was provided by the East Islip Fire Department for a FAST team and the Exchange Ambulance of the Islips and the Bay Shore Brightwaters Rescue Ambulance, Inc. for EMS coverage at the scene. There were 3 occupants in the structure at the time of the fire and were all able to evacuate prior to arrival.
