In the early morning of December 12,  2016, the Rocky Point Fire Department was activated for a reported residential structure fire on Ariel Court. Commanding units arrived to find heavy smoke and visible flames from the second story. Mutual aid was requested from Sound Beach, Miller Place, Wading River and Mount Sinai. Due to the heavy fire load command requested the interior teams to exit the structure and began a defensive attack with multiple tower ladders. Crews battled the stubborn blaze for about an hour in frigid, rainy weather before the alarm was placed under control.
