Fire Departments Respond to Dryer Fire at Ross School
On Wednesday, October 28, East Hampton Fire Department chiefs and officers were dispatched to the Ross School’s Center for Well Being for a report of an activated fire alarm.
First arriving members discovered a fire in a clothes dryer in the basement of the building, and immediately called for a full structure fire response. The fire was quickly knocked down with a fire extinguisher, but it took members at least two hours – and help from the Bridgehampton Fire Department – to clear the smoke from the basement of the building. Members of the East Hampton Town Fire Marshal’s office were called in, and subsequently investigated the fire’s cause and origin.
