“Seven of us figured a way out of the house, whether it was through the main door or the window,” a relative said in a statement published on the website. “My dad’s sister and her dog… tried [to] escape from the back door, and it breaks my heart to say both didn’t make it out.” Some families were dissatisfied with the response of Nassau County firemen. “I questioned them why they didn’t distribute the water because my sister was nearby. “They said no, we couldn’t come in,” Tarun Patel told NBC New York. “We were yelling ‘there’s a human in there,'” Bhumi Patel told WPIX, a CW station. “We’re all just devastated, in shock.”
Nassau County firemen, who did not reply quickly to PEOPLE’s request for comment, said they were temporarily unable to enter the house owing to a downed electrical line. “It was blocking the front door,” Fire Marshal Michael Uttaro told NBC New York. “They jumped over that line and attempted to enter.” According to the authority, there was also a defective fire hydrant nearby, but that they quickly found one that worked, per the outlet. The cause of the deadly house fire remains unknown, although fire officials do not believe it was suspicious, according to WPIX.
