The Smithtown Fire Department was dispatched to a reported house on fire on Plantation Drive in Hauppauge. First Assistant Chief Dongvort was first to respond and called for a second alarm bringing in mutual aid from numerous surrounding departments. Firefighters placed multiple attack lines into operation and made an aggressive interior attack before the decision was made to go to exterior ops. Nesconset Ladder 4-4-7 placed their tower ladder into operation and Smithtown Engine 4-2-3 put their deck gun into operation to darken down the fire as a third alarm was transmitted. The fire was placed under control about an hour later. Three units were damaged as a result of the fire.
