Vacant Bergenfield Home Burns
Vacant Bergenfield Home Burns
Flames tore through an unoccupied house in Bergenfield on December 10th, causing extensive damage, but no injuries. Shortly after 5:30 PM, Bergenfield Firefighters were dispatched to 16 Fairview Ave. on the report of a working fire. Units arrived to heavy fire venting out the rear of a 2 ½ story frame dwelling. A second alarm was transmitted. Access was limited due to the structure being on a dead end street. Lines wee stretched and an interior attack was commenced, but had to be temporarily abandoned due to the heavy fire in the attic area. Once the flames were knocked down, companies returned to an offensive attack and soon had all the visible fire extinguished. Overhaul would last for several hours.

Additional units were called to the scene for manpower. New Milford, Teaneck, Dumont, Englewood, and Box 54 operated. No serious injuries were reported and the cause is under investigation.
