Man dies after being pulled from burning home
A Port Jefferson Station man is dead after a fire tore through his home Monday night.
Police say 52-year-old Gerald Berberich was unconscious when he was pulled out of the house by firefighters just after 10 p.m. Neighbors say he was trying to get out of the house. Berberich died a short time later at Mather Hospital. No one else was at the Davis Avenue home at the time of the fire. No word yet on what sparked the blaze, but neighbors say Berberich may have fallen asleep while he was smoking.
