Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a kitchen fire in New Hyde Park that sent two firefighters to the hospital with minor injuries Friday morning.
The fire, reported at 7:12 a.m., damaged the kitchen and a bathroom at the home on Lakeville Road, Nassau County Assistant Chief Fire Marshal Michael F. Uttaro said.
Officials said that volunteers from New Hyde Park, Garden City Park, Mineola, Manhasset-Lakeville and West Hempstead battled the fire. The two injured firefighters, both from New Hyde Park, had heat exhaustion, officials said.
They were taken to Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, where they were treated and released.
The cause of the fire is not considered suspicious, but rather "accidental."
