Firefighters Stop Garage Fire on Robin Court

Local fire crews knocked down the fire before it spread to the house.

Firefighters from Setauket, Stony Brook, and Centereach stopped a garage fire before it spread to the rest of the home on Tuesday afternoon.

The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire at 3 Robin Court in Setauket, which took about 10 minutes to extinguish, according to Setauket Fire Chief Dennis Mirante.

He said the first crew to arrive deployed a FIT-5, a grenade-like fire suppression device, to help knock the fire out. Additional crews disabled the electricity and gas line in the home.

The fire did not burn through the roof of the garage and would have been a much different kind of fire if it had, Mirante said, because the wind would have fanned the flames.

The homeowner declined to comment.

St. James and Nesconset crews also responded to the scene. The Port Jefferson Fire Department provided coverage for a simultaneous call as Setauket crews stopped the garage fire.

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".
