Structure Fire Hamilton Street

On Thursday, July 14th at 18:07 hours, Fire District 3 was dispatched to the rear of 1030 Hamilton Street for a reported outhouse or porta potty on fire at the rear of the address. Car 27 called in service and had a column of smoke from North Brunswick and requested a first alarm, Box 2701. Ladder 27 also called in service and reported a header in the air from Station 27. Car 25 called in service and arrived minutes later and reported a garage on fire and no exposures. Ladder 27 arrived by going to the rear of 1022 Hamilton Street and cutting a hole in the fence to pull hand lines to the fire area. Ladder 25 arrived, and the crew assisted with the lines off Ladder 27. Tender 44 was requested from the 1st alarm and came in the long driveway of 1030 Hamilton St. and a feeder was given to Ladder 27 and hand lines were pulled off the tender to assist in controlling of the fire. Squad 27 dropped a feeder to Ladder 27, and the Aerial was set up to knock down the bulk of the fire. Once the fire was knocked down, crews were used to mop up and a heavy piece of equipment was brought into the scene to help pull the building apart from DelCasale Excavating since it was fully stocked with cut firewood. Since the chipper caught fire on the back of the truck and the fuel tank leaked Diesel fuel, County Haz-Mat was contacted to respond to the scene to help with clean up. Units were on scene for approximately 2 1/2 hours. The fire is under investigation by the Franklin Township Fire Prevention. Other units on scene were Car 272, Car 274, Engine 272, Utility 27 Utility 272, Car 252, Engine 251 & Engine 253. Rescue 56 was the RIC. Thank you to Bound Brook, Finderne and North Brunswick #2 for covering the District for us.
