Early video from LNBN Photos of a fire early yesterday (Tuesday) in East Farmingdale, New York (Suffolk County on Long Island). Firefighters report access problems at the old airplane factory of the Fairchild Republic Company on Conklin Street.
The building, about 40 feet by 120 feet, was ablaze when the first of about 35 firefighters arrived, and it was a challenge getting access, said First Assistant Chief Matthew Joseph of the East Farmingdale Fire Department.
“It’s very tight quarters and we had to get equipment in there,” Joseph said.
One pumper and one aerial ladder truck drove through what a firefighter described as “alleyways” between mounds of mulch and hills of Sandy-damaged trees.
