East Hampton Star: Montauk Fire Department Chief Joe Lenahan said a fire that broke out at Duryea’s Lobster Deck on Saturday afternoon [Feb. 7], causing damage to a wall, could have been a lot worse had no one been there when it started.

Perry B. Duryea III, who sold the the iconic waterfront seafood wholesale and retail market complex last year but is still managing it, called 911 after spotting smoke in the kitchen while doing some maintenance work, Chief Lenahan said Saturday evening. Firefighters were called out at 1:45 p.m.
