A Long Island firehouse was “pretty much destroyed” after going up in flames Christmas morning, leaving two engines and a truck charred hulks, according to reports.

A passing state trooper noticed the blaze at the North Massapequa fire headquarters at 1000 N. Broadway in Nassau County about 6:20 a.m. and called it in, according to News12.

Officers found the firehouse “fully engulfed,” a police spokesman told Newsday. “The building is pretty much destroyed.”

Firefighters managed to pull an ambulance from the flames, but not before it was damaged, WABC reported.

No injuries were reported and the fire has been extinguished, the spokesman said. About 120 firefighters responded to the conflagration, News12 reported.

Arson investigators are at the scene, the police spokesman said.

Fire Commissioner Frank Nocerino told the newspaper that officials were still assessing the damage.
