Medford, NY – One Killed and Two Firefighters Injured in Long Island Fire
Medford, NY (December 12, 2018) – Late Tuesday night, December 11, a fire was reported to have torn through a home on Long Island, resulting in the death of one individual while injuring two firefighters. Authorities stated that the flames broke out at the home on Oregon Avenue at around 11:00 p.m.
Firefighters and emergency medical crews were immediately dispatched to the location as the quickly spreading fire caused a portion of the house to collapse. Tragically, an adult male who has been identified as Neil Storan was found deceased inside of the home after the fire was extinguished.
Two firefighters were reported to have suffered at least minor injuries as they were transported to Long Island Community Hospital in East Patchogue. Storan will be fondly missed by his two daughters, ages 16 and 11, as well as his neighbors among other family and friends.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation at this time.
