On Aug. 31 at 10:38 p.m. the Glen Cove Police and Fire Department responded to a house fire at 1 Alvin Street in Glen Cove. Upon arrival, the south side of the house was fully engulfed by flames. The house is currently a two-family group home and at the time of the fire four residents were still inside the house. A local businessman, (Tony Lagos), who owns Burger Boys Restaurant which is directly across the street from the fire, saw flames coming from the house and he, and one of his patrons, named Kevin Losee, ran over to the house and they forced the front door open to get inside. Once inside, they alerted the residents that their house was on fire. The Glen Cove Fire Department began to fight the blaze with the assistance of the Sea Cliff Fire Department, Roslyn Fire Department, and Glenwood Fire Department. The fire caused major damage to the residence. Glen Cove EMS transported one female as a precaution. The Glen Cove Mayor and Deputy Mayor were on scene, as well as the homeowner.
“As a result of a joint investigation by the Glen Cove Detective Division, Nassau County Arson Bomb Squad, and the Nassau Fire Marshals ruled the fire as non-suspicious. Thankfully, the quick thinking of the good Samaritans saved the residents from serious injury.”
