MANORVILLE - ? The overnight soaking rain has helped reduce the wildfire danger on Long Island. It has been two weeks since the huge wildfire broke out in Manorville and Ridge.
At least 1,250 acres have been burned across Nassau and Suffolk counties this month.
However, firefighters in Manorville say Long Islanders are still not in the clear.
Before this Nor'easter, the National Weather Service said this was the first severe drought Long Island has had in a decade.
