Plainview firefighters raced to the scene of a car fire in Woodbury late Friday and put down the blaze before it could spread to a series of attached homes.
Reports indicate that multiple alarms were sounded for help by residents of the community in Woodbury known as Eagle Chase.
No injuries have been reported. The vehicle was destroyed.
The first calls for help came at 11:03 p.m. Friday and, as Plainview firefighters were en route, they heard additional reports that the fire had extended to the adjacent units.
Firefighters under the command of Plainview arrived to find a late-model Mercedes sedan fully engulfed in flames. They quickly attacked the fire, knocking down the car blaze and dousing the adjacent home, keeping the flames from spreading to other nearby units.
Firefighters used specialized foam after the vehicle's gas tank exploded. Members of the Nassau County Haz-Mat Unit was called to inspect for gasoline contamination.
The cause of the fire was under investigation. The Eagle Chase community of condominiums has a Woodbury address but is in Plainview's fire district.
