Suffolk County Police Department officers rescued five people from a fire in Huntington Station early Tuesday morning.

Second Precinct police officers Matthew Berube and Michael Haggerty and Emergency Service Section officers Giacomo Marchese and John Farrell responded to a 911 call reporting a fire at 1344 New York Ave. at about 1:30 a.m.

The two-story building includes two apartments over a business.

Police said officers climbed a ladder to rescue four members of a family, a 6-year-old, a 15-year-old and their parents, who had fled to the rooftop. Another officer found a woman in the second apartment and escorted her to safety. 

The four family members were transported to Huntington Hospital for evaluation as a precaution.
