A fatal house fire occurred in Floral Park early this morning, according to Nassau County detectives. The Floral Park Fire Department responded to a call at 33 Clover Ave. reporting a house fire with a person trapped on the second floor. Thomas and Donna Potter were awakened in their first-floor bedroom by their son John, 35, who was yelling for their help from upstairs. Thomas attempted to ascend the stairs to the second floor but was forced back by heat and smoke. The couple fled the burning house and called 911.
