Southampton Fire Department Extinguishes Brush Fire In Shinnecock Hills

Apr 3, 2013 10:36 AM

A Southampton Fire Department crew extinguished a brush fire in Shinnecock Hills on Saturday evening.

Firefighters responded to a call at about 5:20 p.m., according to Chris Brenner, the 2nd assistant chief of the Southampton 
Fire Department. Two brush trucks, one pumper and 
two tankers were used to douse the fire, which took place just west of the Stony Brook 
Southampton campus. Officials were at the scene for 
about an hour.

Units could see heavy smoke billowing up from the woods as they were approaching the scene, he said. The fire was “dangerously close,” to two homes, he said, a distance of about 10 feet.

First Assistant Chief Mike Kampf was in charge. About 30 members responded to the scene.

Southampton Town Fire 
Marshal Brian Williams said on Monday that he was still 
investigating the cause of the fire.
