On Jan. 15 at 7:57 a.m., the Hicksville Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire on Texas Street. Units were met with heavy fire coming from home’s second-floor windows. An aggressive interior attack by Hicksville firefighters quickly knocked the blaze down. The Hicksville Fire Department, under the command of Chief Edward Korona Jr., received on-site assistance from the Bethpage, Jericho and Westbury fire departments while Plainview, Syosset and East Meadow fire departments stood standby at Hicksville’s Station #1. A man in his 20s, the only occupant of the home at the time of the fire, suffered burns and was transported by Nassau County Police ambulance to Nassau University Medical Center.
