Springs Fire Dept Responds to Roof Fire on Talmage Farm Lane

At 9:38 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, members of the Springs Fire Department were called to 99 Talmage Farm Lane for a report of “a fire in the roof” of the residence. First-arriving units found the roof of the home fully involved with fire, and immediately called for aid from the Amagansett and East Hampton Fire Departments for tankers, manpower and a RIT team, as well as tangers from the Sag Harbor and Montauk Fire Departments. The fire, and heaviest damage, was contained to the roof of the house, which was totally destroyed, but firefighters were able to save the rest of the structure. The homeowners evacuated their house safely, and there were no injuries to any responding personnel. The East Hampton Town Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause and origin of the fire, which does not appear to be suspicious at this time.
