On Friday afternoon July 26, 2013 at approximately 14:40 hours, the Huntington Manor Fire Department dispatcher received numerous calls for a structure fire at Tilden Car Care Center, located at 800 New York Ave. in Huntington Station. Arriving first on scene 3rd Assistant Chief of Department Jon Hoffmann (2-4-33) was confronted with a heavy fire load from the exposure 1 (front) and exposure 2 (left side) of the building. He immediately requested mutual aid from Huntington Fire Department for a ladder and engine and Greenlawn Fire Department for an engine to the scene. First arriving Engine 2-4-3 picked up a hydrant on New York Ave and dropped a 5 inch supply line. Crews from the engine stretched (2) two and a half inch lines and began an attack. Due to the heavy volume of fire and numerous autos inside the shop it was determined this would be an exterior attack. Tower Ladder 2-4-7 set up for operations on the exposure 2 side. Engine 3’s deck gun was also put into operation making a total of 3 master streams attacking the fire. Due to the burning cars, propane, acetylene, oxygen, gasoline and other flammables in the building a foam operation was put into place. The electric lines feeding the building burned through sending live wires to the ground also hindering fire operations. It took approximately 100 firefighters from the three departments to bring the fire under control. The Huntington Community First Aid Squad transported an employee of the auto shop with burns to his arm to Huntington Hospital and several firefighters were treated at the scene by Community for heat related complaints. Dix Hills Fire Department provided a standby at Manors Headquarters. Chief of Department Fred Steenson Jr. (2-4-30) declared the fire under control at 16:04 and all units were up at 16:49. The Town of Huntington Fire Marshall and Suffolk County Police Arson Squad were also called to the scene. A total of 6 cars and the building were destroyed in the blaze, however the cause of the fire appears to be accidental.
