Motor Vehicle Accident with Car Fire Creates Major Traffic Jam on Lakeville Road During Rush-Hour

On Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 at 5:07PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 4, 5 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to in front of 318 Lakeville Road in Lake Success for a reported motor vehicle accident with fire. Chief Farrone (8705) and Deputy Chiefs Kiess (8701) and Candan (8704) all responded to the call simultaneously and were advised of a reported motor vehicle accident with possible fire. 

Due to the accident, traffic was at a stand-still on Lakeville Road, which made it very difficult for responding apparatus to arrive at the scene. Despite the heavy congestion, Deputy Chief Candan arrived on scene and confirmed a minor accident with a working vehicle fire. Squad 8759 was the first piece of apparatus to arrive, followed by Engine 8740. Both units stretched 1” ¾ hoselines and extinguished the fire. Ambulances 8767 and 8769 and Ladder 8743 were also on the scene. 

Lakeville Road was shutdown in both directions for about thirty minutes by the Lake Success Police Department while firefighters extinguished the fully-involved vehicle. There were no reported injuries from the passengers of either vehicle involved in the accident and all units were released from the scene within thirty minutes by Chief of Department Farrone.
