Pick-up truck fire in Ridge Monday, September 8, 2014. At approx. 10:00 a.m. the Ridge F.D. and SCPD 7th Pct. responded to the Long Island Shooting Range of Brookhaven located in Fireman's park for a reported truck fire. Upon arrival, firefighters were confronted with a fully involved fire in a pick-up truck, which also contained ammunition for the firearms range, that was extending to a structure. Also hindering operations was the fire's close proximity to propane cylinders. As ammunition was heard popping, due to the fire's intensity, firefighters had to maintain a safe distance and use their "deck guns" mounted atop their fire apparatus to safely reach the blaze. After the main body of fire was extinguished, and over 2000 feet of 5" hose was stretched, firefighters advanced with fire hoses to extinguish the rest of the truck fire and to examine the building which was damaged in the inferno. The Middle Island F.D. was also called in to assist with the fire.
