On Friday July 13th, 2018 at approximately 1:02 p.m. East Franklin Fire Department was requested mutual aid into the City of New Brunswick, while they were operating on a working Structure Fire at 254 Delavan Street.
Squad 27 responded to Engine Co. 5 to standby per the 2nd Alarm Assignment. While enroute to the firehouse, Squad was redirected to the fire scene which was now upgraded to a 3rd Alarm Assignment by Car 21.
With multiple structures involved, along with high temperatures and humidity, it truly was a tough day for the firefighters on the scene. The crew from Squad 27 spent approximately 3 hours in the City, performing extinguishment operations on the scene, along with salvage and overhaul. After the fire was placed under control, the crew of Squad 27 was moved back to Engine Co. 5 and provided coverage for the City.
Good job by all who responded to this scene and those who stood by to provide coverage for Fire District #3.
