Central Avenue House Fire

Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department

On January 31, 2006, at approximately 11:30 p.m., the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 200 block of Central Avenue.

Engines 615 and 616, Rescue 614 and Ambulances 603 and 604 went into action. Hackensack Fire Department’s Ladder 1 vented the roof, since the Hasbrouck Heights Ladder Truck was out of service for scheduled repairs to the pump and power transfer unit.

A FAST Team from Moonachie Fire Department was on the scene. Other mutual aid departments standing by at Hasbrouck Heights Fire Headquarters included Lodi Fire Department Ladder, Wood-Ridge Engine, Wallington Engine and Wallington Rescue.

The fire broke out in the second story of the home, spread quickly and destroyed the attic. The fire was under control in approximately twenty-five minutes.

Former Fire Chief Tony Greco stated, "because monthly fire drills were conducted, the residents evacuated exactly according to their training. This is a good example why every household in Hasbrouck Heights should have a fire evacuation plan and exercise fire drills regularly."

The fire is under investigation. No injuries were reported. The structure was deemed uninhabitable due to smoke and water damage. Approximately six adults resided in the home. ###
