The Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department, Roslyn Rescue and Roslyn Highlands Fire Companies extinguished a truck fire Sunday on the Long Island Expressway in North Hills that closed lanes for two hours, officials said.
Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Companies No. 2, 3 and 5 were dispatched to the westbound Long Island Expressway near Exit 36, the department said.
While responding, the companies were told the Nassau County Police Department’s Highway Patrol was on the scene and confirmed a fully active fire with a trailer carrying tires.
First responders needed to stretch supply lines from Willis Avenue and Searingtown Road to extinguish the fire due to its volume and lack of hydrants in the immediate area, the department said.
Also responding to the scene were the Roslyn Rescue and Roslyn Highlands Fire Companies.
No injuries were reported in the incident, officials said.
Two hours after the fire started, eastbound lanes reopened and westbound traffic was fully open as of Monday morning.
