The Centerport Fire Department responded to a fire in the Bull Calf Landing Townhouse Complex on Bull Calf Lane early Tuesday morning, January 24, 2016 at about 1:10 a.m. Over 100 firefighters from Centerport assisted by Northport, Greenlawn, Halesite, Huntington, Huntington Manor, Cold Spring Harbor, East Northport, Eaton’s Neck and Kings Park FD’s batted the blaze with EMS support from Commack and Huntington ambulance. Strong gusting winds from the Nor’easter storm that swept through the area hampered firefighters efforts, as they worked several hours to knock down the flames that spread through several townhouse units. About 20 residents were safely evacuated from the building involved that later collapsed, and there were no injuries reported. Centerport firefighters provided shelter for some of the displaced residents at the Centerport firehouse. The fire is under investigation by the Suffolk Police Arson Squad and Town of Huntington Fire Marshal. The firefighting operation was under the command of Centerport Fire Chief Tom Boyd and Assistant Chiefs Rich Miltner and Andy Heglund. Chief Boyd commended the firefighters for their efforts working in adverse conditions, and thanked the mutual aid departments for their assistance.
