A Gin Lane home was saved on Thursday night thanks to the work of the Southampton Fire Department.
The fire was initially reported to the department at approximately 7:51 p.m. on Thursday, and upon arriving on scene Fire Chief Dennis Roy found a working structure fire at the home, according to Second Assistant Chief Chris Brenner. Firefighters were on scene at 36 Gin Lane within minutes, and Mr. Brenner said they were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to any other rooms and was extinguished within the hour.
Fire crews then assessed the entire home checking for extensions of the fire. The cause of the fire is still unknown and no injuries were reported from the scene. It is unclear if anyone was home when the fire started.
The Southampton Village Volunteer ambulance also responded to the scene of the fire, and performed health assessments on all responding firefighters on the scene. No one was transported to the hospital.
The North Sea Fire Department acted on stand by at the Windmill Lane fire house.
According to Mr. Brenner, Chief Roy was in charge on scene, which was cleared by 10 p.m.
“The members did a great job in stopping the fire,” Mr. Brenner said. “They were able to stop it from spreading to the rest of the house.”
