At roughly 5:00 p.m. the Springs Fire Department was called to 52 Cedar Drive for a report of a structure fire. First arriving units reported flames extending up the front of the building and into the roof, but firefighters were able to know the flames down quickly without incident. The East Hampton Fire Department’s RIT (Rapid Intervention Team) was called to the scene to stand by, and one engine from the Amagansett FD was called to stand by at the Springs firehouse. All units were back in service within two hours, and the East Hampton Town Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the fire’s cause and origin.
