Westbury family escape smoke-filled home
Six adults and five children were rushed to the hospital Friday morning after their Westbury home filled with smoke.
Firefighters say the oil burner backed up, sending a plume of black smoke into the home. They say it could have been avoided with a little maintenance.
?If they don't have their nozzles checked, don't have their chimneys cleaned, don't have all the filters changed, then you're going to get a backup," says Westbury Fire Chief Douglas Ingram.
Everyone in the home is recovering.
