LaSalle Avenue House Fire

Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department

On May 27, 2006, at approximately 3:20 p.m., there was a report of smoke from a gable at the 100 block of LaSalle Avenue, and confirmed by the Hasbrouck Heights Police Department.

The Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department respondedwith Engines 615 and 616, Ladder 617, Rescue 614 and Ambulances 603 and 604.

The fire broke out in the attic between the ceiling and the roof of the wood frame home. Although there was heavy smoke, the ceiling was pulled down and water was applied. The ladder company vented the smoke. Once the smoke was cleared, the Department used an infrared camera to check for hot spots and fire extensions. The situation was under control in approximately twenty-five minutes. The Department saved the family parakeet.

Due to the 81°/ 47% humidity, all responding firefighters went to EMS to get checked out.

A Hackensack Fire Department engine with a FAST Team was on the scene. A Wood-Ridge Fire Department engine and a Moonachie Fire Department ladder truck were on standby at HHFD Headquarters.

The fire is under investigation. No injuries were reported. The structure was deemed uninhabitable due to smoke and water damage. ###
