Suffolk Legislature meeting stalled to deal with car fire

Two Suffolk County legislators, both with experience fighting fires, jumped into action Tuesday when, during a meeting at the county government office in Riverhead, a car in the parking lot burst into flames.
Rudy A. Sunderman, a newly elected legislator and Mastic fire chief, said a man ran into the Legislature about 2 p.m. to alert them of the fire.
Sunderman (R-Shirley) and Tom Donnelly (D-Deer Park), a former commissioner of the Deer Park fire department, rushed to the scene.
