    Alcohol is banned on some federally-owned Fire Island beaches starting Friday.

    The ban is in effect on federal lands in the Town of Islip between the communities of Atlantique and Corneille Estates. It's being enacted by the Fire Island National Seashore.

    The ban was prompted by alcohol-fueled parties on the beach.

    Drinking is not banned on other federally-owned Fire Island National Seashore beaches.
