On November 11, 2023, at approximately 1856, the Terryville Fire Department was activated for a structure fire on Miller Avenue in Terryville. Terryville Chief 31 was the first chief out on the road and arrived to smoke showing. It was discovered that there was a single-story home with an exposure on the 2 side with fire in the walls, spreading throughout the attic. Terryville Engine 12 stretched a line and Truck 4 set up its bucket. The fire was knocked down quickly. A second line was stretched through the front door. Searches of the home revealed cats inside; three were rescued. Multiple departments were activated for mutual aid including Selden, Coram, Centereach, Setauket, Port Jefferson and Mount Sinai. The alarm was placed under control at 1921. The scene was then handed over to the Brookhaven Town Fire Marshal’s Office for investigation.
