The Huntington Fire Department responded to another fire in Huntington Village early Sunday morning, August 3, at 23 Wall Street between Main and Gerard Streets. The fire started in a void between two buildings and spread up the side and into the basement of Cafe Buenos Aires. About 15 residents were safely evacuated from apartments on two floors above the cafe. The restaurant sustained smoke and water damage, with some fire damage to the basement. The adjacent Dunkin’ Donuts also had smoke damage. Fifty firefighters from Huntington and Cold Spring Harbor responded to the 4:38 a.m. alarm with five trucks, and had the fire contained and under control within 45 minutes. Halesite firefighters provided standby coverage for Huntington during the fire. Fireground command was led by Huntington Fire Chief Robert Berry, with the support of Deputy Chiefs Jesse Cukro, Rob Conroy and Brian Keane. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Suffolk Police Arson Squad and Town of Huntington Fire Marshal. Suffolk Fire-Rescue Coordinators were also on the scene assisting.
