Dix Hills Fire Department volunteers responded to reports of a basement fire in a home on Spartan Place, Sunday at about 10:08 p.m. 

First arriving firefighters found a heavy smoke condition in the basement, and began an aggressive interior attack. Under the command of Chief Bill Stio, 45 firefighters and rescue personnel were on the scene with five trucks, three ambulances, and paramedic first responder units. Operations were handled by Assistant Chiefs Robert Fling, Tom Napolitano and Alan Berkowitz.

The Deer Park Fire Department assisted with a rapid intervention team, and the Commack Fire Department supplied a standby engine for coverage.

The fire was quickly brought under control and no injuries were reported. 

The blaze appears to be accidental, but is under investigation by the Suffolk Police Arson Squad and Town of Huntington Fire Marshal.
