A busy day for the Jamesport FD

The Jamesport Fire Dept. was unusually busy on Friday, responding to a structure fire in the wee hours and two motor vehicle accidents later in the afternoon.

The first call, for structure fire in the basement of a home at 377 Tuthill Lane, came in at 5:13 a.m. . The fire was extinguished by the time the two engines with full crews arrived.

The department later responded to two vehicle accidents attributed to icy roads. The first was a three-car crash with an overturned vehicle on Sound Avenue east of Manor Lane. The Riverhead Volunteer and Mattituck Fire Department ambulances transported three people to Peconic Bay Medical Center.

While handling that crash, a second call came at 5:43 p.m. of a two-car crash on the Main Road west of Laurel Lane. The FD brought one accident victim to PBMC.
