Fire destroys home in East Meadow
A fire destroyed an East Meadow home on 7th Street Thursday.
Seventy-five firefighters responded to the call at around 8:30 p.m.
Three people were injured. One was taken to the hospital with minor burns and the other two refused treatment at the scene.
East Meadow Fire Chief Paul Kosiba says there were three large propane tanks on the side of the house. Kosiba says it could have been a lot worse.
Candace Turner, 73, who lives a few houses away, saw the flames and ran to the home to alert the people inside.
A neighboring home was also damaged.
The fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
David Kimler caught the whole thing on his Ring doorbell video and shared it on Twitter.
