The Centerport Fire Department responded to a fire in the Bull Calf Landing Townhouse Complex on January 24, 2016. Over 100 firefighters from Centerport assisted by Northport, Greenlawn, Halesite, Huntington, Huntington Manor, Cold Spring Harbor, East Northport, Eaton’s Neck and Kings Park battled the blaze with EMS support from Commack and Huntington VACs. Strong gusting winds 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, and there were no injuries reported. The fire was under investigation by the Suffolk Police Arson Squad and Town of Huntington Fire Marshal. Units were under the command of Chief Tom Boyd and Assistant Chiefs Rich Miltner and Andy Heglund.
