Hasbrouck Heights Boro Hall Fire
Photos and story by Karen Fels

Midnight multi-alarm fire with flames soaring over 60 feet collapsed the roof of the Hasbrouck Heights Municipal Building on Friday, December 10, 1999.

Wicked winds hampered firefighters efforts to save the building. Water to fight the fire had to be relayed via several pumpers from Route 17 to support the desperate mission.

The fire was fought by the courageous men and women of Hasbrouck Heights, Hackensack, Wood-Ridge, Moonachie, Lyndhurst, Little Ferry, Rutherford, East Rutherford, Lodi, N. Arlington, Teaneck, Wallington and Carlstadt Fire Departments until after 4 A.M. while hundreds of horrified spectators watched.
