A fire that broke out at Duryea’s Lobster Deck, a wholesale and retail seafood complex and restaurant on Fort Pond Bay in Montauk, could have been much worse had no one been there when it started on Saturday afternoon, fire officials said. The take-out business will even be serving up a “lobster lovers’ special” for Valentine’s Day weekend.
