Four people were home at the time, although none were injured, according to North Bellmore Fire Department officials.

North Jerusalem Road was closed down for 30 minutes after a small fire broke out in a residence at the Roxboro Court intersection just after 8:30 p.m Tuesday night.

According to North Bellmore Fire Department Chief Eddie Kraus, there was "a little bit of fire" in the laundry room of the home, although firefighters contained it immediately.

Four people were home at the time of alarm and self-evacuated. There were no injuries, Kraus added.

"They called it in and they were vigilant," Kraus said. "They did the right thing."

First Precinct officers blocked traffic between Sterling Street and Midvale Avenue while firefighters secured the scene. Motorists were guided to nearby side streets.
