Firefighter Injured in a New York House Fire
Calendar icon March 30, 2021

A firefighter was injured while trying to put out a New York house fire early on Thursday, March 18.

The fire started at about 1:30 a.m. in the Bay Shore area of Islip on Long Island. The blaze was so massive that crews from four departments responded to the call.

One firefighter sustained unspecified injuries while he was battling the fire and was taken to the hospital for treatment. There are no details about how the firefighter was injured or the degree of the injuries.

The cause of the New York house fire is still investigated.

Burn injuries can be devastating and may take a long time to heal. And even after the healing, the person could still have health issues. They may be unable to earn and enjoy simple life activities.

Even though most people connect burn injuries with fires, they could easily occur after an explosion of chemicals, using electricity tools, vapors and hot water. 

If your injuries occurred because of someone else’s negligence, or as a result of your work, make sure to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.

The attorney will help you while you are recovering from your injuries. They will review your case, gather evidence, file a lawsuit, seek a compensation claim on your behalf, and negotiate for the settlement. Don’t go into this process on your own; the insurance company will work with lawyers and so should you. This way you can be sure that you’ll receive the right settlement that will cover your medical expenses, lost wages but also coverage for pain and suffering. Some people with severe burn injuries may even seek a loss of future earnings coverage.

  • Mark Kochanowicz is from far the best attorney you can have. Mark treats you like a friend more than a client. He truly cares and go the extra mile for you and your case, contacts you to update you in regards to your case and keep you informed at all times. Mark represented me twice and settled my cases for way more than I expected. I highly recommend Mark Kochanowicz because he is just the best on what he does!!! Thank you Mark!!!!


  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.


  • Thank you for your time, effort, and hard work on my case. I appreciate your expertise and compassion. I never experienced what I went through and I would have been completely lost without you.


  • It was a great pleasure working with you on my lawsuit. You certainly gave 150% of your time and interest in settling my case and for that, I am extremely grateful. Therefore, I want to thank you very much for helping me win my settlement and wish you the very best.
