A group of passers-by forced their way into a Bayport home and alerted three residents that the house was on fire early Saturday, Suffolk County police said.

 

Five adults were riding in a car about 2:10 a.m. when they passed a home on Middle Road and noticed it was on fire, a police spokeswoman said.

They got out of the vehicle, knocked on the door and eventually forced their way in to reach the unsuspecting dwellers, police said. “They were sound asleep. They had no idea what was going on,” Bayport Fire Chief Bob Fleming said of the residents. “The people kicked in the door and woke them up out of a sound sleep. They definitely saved their lives, all three of them.” Two people in the home, as well as a tenant in another part of the house, were all able to get out safely, police and Fleming said.
