BYRAM TOWNSHIP, NJ (Sussex County) – Firefighters say a dog died, but no people were hurt Tuesday morning after a two-alarm house fire in Byram Township.
The fire was reported at around 7:46 a.m. at a residence on Winding Way.
While firefighters were responding, Byram Township Police Department were on scene confirming a working fire and there was possible entrapment. A second alarm was requested bringing additional resources to the scene.
The homeowner was determined not to be home.
