At 11:14 hours Sunday night, District 3 was toned out to the 600 block of Hamilton Street for a structure fire. Car 27 arrived and reported a working fire in a one story commercial store front, attached to a 2 1/2 story residential.
A first alarm was transmitted upon arrival. Car 25 arrived and took operations. Engine 253 arrived first due and the crew stretched a 200’ 2” attack line and forced entry to the store front. The crew quickly encountered heavy fire in the front of the building, and was quickly able to knock it down. Ladder 27 arrived second due and assisted with searches. Ladder 25 went to work opening up the store front, Squad 27 arrived and laid in a supply line to Engine 253, and stretched a second line to the front door. Rescue 25 arrived and the crew checked the exposure, finding no extension. Additional units on scene were Car 272, Car274, Car 25, Engine 27 and Air 27.
Thank you to Somerset Fire & Rescue Co. No. 1 for their RIC team, Middlebush Volunteer Fire Department - Station 44, Bound Brook Fire Department for covering the District and City of New Brunswick Fire Department and North Brunswick Volunteer Fire Company 3 for covering from their Stations.
