FIRE ISLAND - Fire Island ferries were back in action this morning, allowing many residents to access their homes for the first time since Tropical Storm Irene.

Sharon and Art Fiyalka, along with their three cats, took one of the first ferries back to their summer home on Fire Island. They found the surrounding area flooded, but their house intact.

Outside, however, they discovered a tree that has been toppled by the wind onto their roof.

"I'm delighted we didn't get flooded inside the house, but I'm shocked at what happened outside the house," Art Fiyalka says.

Full ferry service to Fire Island is now running from all three Bay Shore terminals, but out of Patchogue, service is only running to Davis Park. Full service to Watch Hill is expected to resume tomorrow morning, and there is still only limited service out of Sayville.
