Neighbor and Suffolk PD save Centereach Woman


A Centereach woman is lucky to be alive after a neighbor and two Suffolk police officers saved her from a raging house fire.

Authorities say the fire broke out at a Forest Road home shortly after 3:00 a.m. yesterday morning, trapping 66-year-old Rosemarie Donnelly on the second floor.  Neighbor Thomas Earl and two cops managed to find a ladder and safely get Donnelly out.  Four others in the home were able to get out on their own.

A family dog died in the fire.  Donnelly and Earl were hospitalized with back injuries.
