Volunteer firefighters from the Dix Hills Fire Department responded to reports of fire coming from the roof of a house on Carlls Straight Path near Patri Court at around 9:50 p.m. Saturday.

Firefighters found the fire in a one-story house at the end of a long, snow-covered driveway. After launching an aggressive interior attack on the attic fire, volunteers quickly had the blaze extinguished and under control, fire officials said. 

No injuries were reported.

Forty firefighters and rescue personnel were on the scene with six engines, two ambulances, rehab unit, first responder and paramedic unit, under the command of Chief Robert Fling. Operations sectors were handled by Assistant Chiefs Tom Napolitano, Alan Berkowitz and Joe Williamson. 

The Deer Park Fire Department assisted at the scene with a Rapid Intervention Team, and the Greenlawn FD and Commack Ambulance Corps provided standby coverage for Dix Hills.

The fire appears to be accidental and is under investigation by the Town of Huntington Fire Marshal.
