Apparently, Corvettes aren’t the only thing that’s fast in New York.
Firefighters from the Hampton Bays Fire Department are earning praise for their fast work in putting out a C3 Corvette fire Sunday afternoon.
A series of action photos from the scene posted on Facebook by the fire department shows a group of firefighters battling the blaze as smoke billows out of the engine compartment of the 1973 dark green Stingray convertible.
Firefighters answered the call at 12:22 p.m. and responded to the scene on West Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays, New York, just west of the railroad bridge.
Officials said Heavy Rescue Engine 7-5-4 extinguished the fire quickly, with 7-5-7 standing by to supply more water if necessary. Two other engines – 7-5-10 and 11 – helped divert traffic away from the scene, giving firefighters the room to work safely on the highway.
Based on photos, damage appears to have been confined to the front end of the car.
