WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A two-alarm fire Friday night in Washington Township is under investigation, according to a post on the Schooley’s Mountain Fire Co.3’s Facebook’s page.
It broke out at 6:20 p.m. at a residence on Hidden Glen Road.
Due to multiples calls and a member on scene, the fire was quickly confirmed and upgraded to a 2nd alarm, authorities said.
Schooley’s Mountain engine arrived on scene and placed 2 handlines in operation immediately with help from a Long Valley engine. Schooley’s Mountain ladder arrived and split their crew, sending two inside and two to the roof to vent. Roof crews worked from the tip of the ladder due to the roof not being safe, authorities said.
Additional Long Valley units and Fairmount units established a water supply and assisted with interior operations. The fire was quickly knocked and extensive overhaul took place. All units were clear within 2 hours, authorities said.
There were no reported injuries, authorities said.
The fire is currently under investigation by the Washington Township Police Department and Washington Township Fire Inspector, authorities said.
