Over 50 firefighters responded to a house fire in Williston Park around 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sep. 12.
A bed caught on fire in an upstairs bedroom at 71 East Williston Ave. and all occupants evacuated the property before firefighters arrived and extinguished the fire in under 15 minutes.
First responders from the East Williston, Mineola, Roslyn Highlands and Westbury Fire Departments were on the scene within minutes of an automatic mutual aid alarm and were able to keep the damage mostly contained to the room where the fire began, Nassau County Chief Fire Marshal Michael Uttaro told Blank Slate Media.
No injuries were reported at the fire. The fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire, which is currently undetermined and no criminality is suspected, Uttaro said.
