The Melville Fire Department responded to a fire in a Trash Compactor inside a building at the Avalon Court Apartments on Republic Road on October 24 at about 3:20 p.m. Firefighters used a winch to remove the compactor from the building, and extinguished the burning contents. Two engines, a heavy rescue truck and three ambulances responded with 20 fire/rescue personnel, under the direction of Assistant Chiefs David Kaplan and Bill Schmitt. Units were on the scene for about 90 minutes overhauling and dousing the contents of the compactor.
