Fire-Rescue News

Thursday, April 16, 2015 11:50AM

Police said a Long Island man set his rental car ablaze while trying to kill bedbugs inside the vehicle.

Scott Kemery suffered first- and second-degree burns in the incident Tuesday afternoon outside an Eastport King Kullen.

Police say the man poured alcohol over the insects, then sat in the car and lit a cigarette, setting off the blaze.

He fled the vehicle on his own. A line of cars went up in flames in the Long Island parking lot.

Detective Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald told Newsday that someone told Kemery that if he saturated the bedbugs with alcohol it would kill them.

Police say two other cars were heavily damaged from the intense heat of the fire.

TV Interview Interrupted by Explosion and Flying Manhole (Exploding Cover) Buffalo, NY VIDEO


A Buffalo TV station arrived just in time for a stunning explosion.

A crew from WGRZ had arrived at the scene of an underground electrical fire in the city and was interviewing people about what had just occurred Sunday afternoon.

As one man tried to explain the large amount of smoke he saw coming from under the roadway, the audience got a clear picture of the scene as suddenly a manhole cover exploded and soared into the sky.

This was the second of three manhole cover explosions in the downtown area, National Grid spokesman Steve Brady told the Daily News. Half a dozen customers were left without power but there were no injuries, he said.

Naturally, this legislation has received tremendous support from the fire safety advocates and has raised some questions from homeowners and builders. I would like to address some of the more common concerns with residential fire sprinklers.

Firefighters extinguished a Northfield house fire Tuesday on the corner of Tilton Road and Locust Drive.

Firefighters were still on the scene at 3 p.m., but Northfield Fire Chief Bruce Cummings said the fire was under control. He said the fire was in the rear of the house, which had both interior and exterior damage.

Northfield police said Patrolman Michael Bach saw smoke coming from the residence and then saw fire coming through a window in the rear of the house around 2:20 p.m.

Police had Tilton Road closed to all traffic between Zion Road and Wabash Avenue. Pleasantville, Linwood and Somers Point fire departments assisted Northfield, Cummings said.

Cummings said the cause of the fire was still under investigation.
