A massive fire on Long Island in Mineola, New York, damaged or destroyed multiple occupancies on Sunday evening, March 15.
The original call came in around 8:00 p.m. for a vehicle fire at a Main Street parking garage.
When units arrived on the scene, the fire had already extended to an adjacent row of stores with apartments above.
The old wooden construction led to a quick spread of the blaze and a call for nearly a dozen surrounding departments to assist with mutual aid.
The incident took more than five hours to bring under control.
