Early Wednesday morning, Nov. 6, Manhasset Lakeville fire fighters responded to a dispatch on Park Avenue in Manhasset. The owner was not at home at the time and a concerned neighbor noticed  smoke emanating from the house and called fire officials. At the scene, it was immediately evident that black smoke was billowing from the chimney. Smoke was visible coming from the windows of the dwelling.  
A fire had erupted in the wall of the basement causing smoky conditions. Luckily, a pipe burst in the wall, extinguishing most of the flames. Companies One and Two responded to the fire. The fire marshal and the Town of North Hempstead building inspector were at the scene. Traffic was closed off on Park Avenue during the action until the scene was pronounced all clear.
