On Sunday August 19th, as members were cleaning up from the yearly open house tones were sounded for a reported Structure Fire with smoke showing at 635A Stewart Ave in the Coast Guard Housing. First on scene was Chief Billy Dalton who notified the responding apparatus he had a two story duplex with smoke showing from the front door and was advised the stove and cabinets were on fire.

Engine 1 arrived on scene minutes after the call was dispatched and stretched a 1-3/4" hose line to the kitchen to fully extinguish the smoldering fire. Truck 6 arrived and the members immediately began to search for the family dog and open the walls to check for fire extension. The fire was confined to the cooking appliances and cabinets around. The dog was found safe and unharmed under a bed on the second floor and returned to its owners. The house was vented of smoke and high levels of CO before being released.

Multiple neighbors heard and saw the smoke and ran to the house with fire extinguishes. Their actions, of knocking down the fire before it could grow and spread, saved the house.. All units were back in service at 7pm. The Southampton Town Fire Marshal's office was called into investigate the fire. There were no injuries to any firefighters or residents.

Units: 781, 782, 785, 786, 789,7811 7830,31,32
