Numerous units from the Roslyn fire companies and Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department battled a tractor-trailer fire. The truck, containing tires, was on the Long Island Expressway westbound just east of Searingtown Road. More than 2000 feet of five-inch supply line was used to support the two handlines and two master streams that were used for extinguishment. The stubborn blaze led to the closure of the North Service Road and the LIE in both directions. Nassau Highway Patrol units, and 6th Precinct units and units from the Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office assisted at the scene. Additionally, a NYSDOT pay-loader was put to work. No injuries were reported but traffic was tied up for more-than-two-hours.
