Earlier this morning firefighters operated on the scene of a working fire at North Massapequa fire headquarters. The fire ravaged the department’s tower ladder designated Ladder 661 [an early 2000s ALF] and damaged the two engines and ambulance that were housed on site as well; however, the fate of those apparatus is unknown at this time. There was extension to the building; although, firefighters quickly knocked down the main body of fire and kept it to contained to the apparatus area. The cause of the fire is under investigation and there were no reported injuries. @k2mphoto Additional photos from the scene can be found on the link below:
