The Bellport Fire Department received a call for an electrical hazard on Bayview Avenue. At 0505 it was changed to a structure fire. For the most part, the damage was limited to a smoldering soffit and melted siding by a conduit where the electrical line came into the house. Thanks to South Country Ambulance and SCPD for their assistance, as well as the quick response by LIPA to cut power to the house.
