East Moriches School
Behind the Eagle - Montauk Highway & Adelaide Ave.
September 11, 1989

On the morning of September 11, 1989 at 1:40 am an alarm was called in reporting that the "old" East Moriches School was on fire. As Chief Jim Romanowski and Engines were arriving this is the scene they were approaching: the Cupola (bell tower) third floor was ablaze with flames free burning. The second floor was ablaze and starting to break out through the roof in the front of the school facing Montauk Highway. Chief Romanowski immediately called for a signal 3 and asked for mutual aid from Center Moriches, Mastic, Manorville and Eastport.

Eastport responded with a Deck Gun - water supplied from a hydrant. Center Moriches also responded with a Deck Gun and Tanker - water supplied from a hydrant and Mastic responded with a Tanker.

The Cupola was lost, the roof was lost and the second floor burned out. The cause of the fire was determined to be arson but no arrests were made. The Eagle was not damaged. The remains of the school were demolised and a new Medical Center stands in its place today.
