“On July 22nd 2016, at 0628 hours Newark units were dispatched to the area of 60 Wing Street for a report of a structure fire. NFD had 17 members on duty that responded in 2 engines, 2 ladders, 2 medics and chief officer on the initial assignment. Heath FD assisted upon announcement of the working fire responding with 2 additional engines.
The on-duty NFD members responding to this call was at the location next to this address the previous morning to assist with a working fire that damaged 4 buildings so we were feeling confident that this was most likely going to be a working fire.
Upon arrival of BN-1 heavy fire is noted on the front porch area extending into the structure and up the A-side of the structure. The occupant reported that everyone had made it out.
The first arriving engine attacked the main body of the fire with a 1 3/4″ attack line. The front porch roof collapsed down blocking entry into the front side of the building. A second 1 3/4″ lined was charged and entry was make through the back door on the C-side.
The cause of this fire as well as the fire the previous morning are both under investigation.
