This afternoon at around 2pm the Selden Fire Department was called to 11 Conklin St. after multiple reports of a house fire.
Upon arrival units were met with fire in a 2 story home with the family, at least 1 adult male, 1 adult female and a small child, already evacuated. One person was treated on scene for smoke inhalation but refused transport.
The fire, which may have started on the exterior of the home, spread into the front door and then into the attic area. The fire eventually made it’s way through the roof. The fire was brought under control in about 45 minutes.
The Town of Brookhaven Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
