I cobbled this together from various news reports. Feel free to leave more information in the comments.
Fire engulfed a home on Arnold Ave in West Babylon on Saturday afternoon. The utility pole directly in front of the home caught fire as well, snapping wires and causing loss of power and cable service to some of the surrounding areas, residents reported.
Live wires fell on a fire truck while firefighters battled the blaze. Two firefighters were reportedly injured, although not seriously. One firefighter injured their knee, the other had an undisclosed minor injury.
The cause of the fire is under investigation
