Story and Photos by Ted Aurig/www.NewJerseyFireGround.com
On March 9th, 2017 a dwelling fire was reported on E. 3rd Ave in Runnemede. First arriving units reported heavy fire conditions from a single family wood frame dwelling. Command struck the All Hands box.
Crews secured a water supply and led off with a 1 ¾” hand line to find heavy fire conditions. A back up line was stretched and placed in operation by the 2nd due Engine.
Crews opened up from the exterior as Command struck the emergency evacuation order for heavy fire conditions throughout the dwelling.
Crews placed a 2 ½” hand line in operation from the rear to knock down the bulk of the fire. Crews then re-entered the dwelling to hit hot spots and open up. Searches were negative in the dwelling.
The fire brought under control with no injuries to firefighters. The fire remains under investigation.
