On April 15, firefighters from Sayville, Bohemia, Holbrook, Holtsville and North Patchogue as well as several Town and County agencies converged on Sans Souci County Park in Sayville in response to multiple brush fires.
Over a dozen vehicles responded, including brush trucks from each department, while West Sayville Fire Department stood by at Sayville’s Headquarters to cover other alarms.
Sayville’s Ex-Chief Larry Sesso established Incident Command in the parking lot of Sayville’s Station 2 on Broadway, which borders the park property. Brush truck crews made entry into the park where they located and extinguished three separate fires that burned several acres. Without the quick actions and cooperation of the responding firefighters, the fire would have burned more acres due to the high winds.
