Huntington Station (WALK) - Fire officials continue their investigation into a fatal housefire in Huntington Station where a woman and her disabled adult daughter were killed late Thursday night.

The only survivor, Joseph Martinez, 29, escaped the fire through a basement window and suffered minor, non-lifethreatening injuries, according to police. The victims were his mother and sister.
Firefighters from the Huntington Manor Fire Department say that the house was extremely cluttered, which complicated efforts to battle the flames.
