Power Lines Down With Car Fire

Posted on January 10, 2016

On January 9th at approximately 0800 hours, units were requested to Hoffman Avenue for a report of wires down with a car on fire.  Chiefs arrived on scene to find 2 primary wires down with a fully involved car fire.  Engine 33, 34, and Tower 31 responded as well as PSE&G.  Once power was secured to the wires units extinguished the fire.  As units were picking up from the car fire Engine 34 was requested to respond mutual aid to Oradell for the working structure fire.  All units cleared the scene by 1000.
