Fire Safety Suggestions for Fire Island Homeowners
From The Ocean Beach Fire Department
Is it correct that heavy winds and arcing wires significantly contributed to recent house fires? What else are common contributors?
The Ocean Beach Fire department does respond to many calls for arcing wires. These calls are usually triggered by the combination of heavy winds and overgrown trees. Although the fires in OB last year occurred on very windy days, there have been no official determinations as to the origins of those fires.
