Mattituck F.D. responds to fire at woodworking building

The Mattituck Fire Department responded to a fire at a woodworking building Tuesday afternoon.

Officials said a fire started in a piece of equipment that collects sawdust. The fire ignited mulch outside the building on Sound Avenue, which then lit a small fire on the south side of the building, officials said.

The fire was reported just after 3 p.m. at the building. Heavy smoke was visible at the scene as firefighters arrived. Firefighters quickly had the scene under control.

No injuries were reported.

Correction: The owner of the building was misidentified in the original post.
