At least 21 residents of a condominium complex in Central Islip were forced to flee their homes Thursday morning after a fire ignited then spread throughout the units, officials said. No one was hurt.
The fire on Adams Road was reported at 12:40 a.m. by a 911 caller, according to police.
Patrick C. Murphy, chief of the Central Islip Fire Department, described the damage to the two-story complex as “severe” and said displaced residents will not be able to return home anytime soon.
Murphy did not know how many apartments were in the complex but said there were at least four units on the first floor and four on the second floor.
