Engine Goes to West Windsor

WEST WINDSOR (Mercer County) – May 19, 2008 - Firefighters from Robbinsville Township IAFF Local 3786 assisted their brother and sister firefighters from IAFF Local 3610 at a second alarm house fire this evening.

Robbinsville Township Engine 40 responded on the initial dispatch at 5:01 PM for a reported house fire at 51 Remington Circle.  Engine 40 and EMS Captain 40 (Towner) responded and arrived third due moments behind an Engine from East Windsor and an Engine from Princeton Junction.  Personnel were faced with a wind whipped fire that had already consumed most of the single family dwelling’s attached garage.

Engine 40 firefighters (assisted by firefighters from Station 45 [West Windsor Emergency Services]) took an attack line to the second floor where they pulled ceilings and hit heavy fire that had extended into the attic.  Engine 40 and Station 45 personnel were credited with preventing the fire from gaining control of the attic and second floor.  Their actions likely prevented the fire from becoming a defensive operation.  Though some exterior lines were mistakenly placed in service while firefighters were still operating on the interior, IAFF members held fast until the fire was knocked down.  Personnel remained on scene for over an hour until the fire was placed under control.

Engine 40 firefighters had just exited the fire building when a ceiling collapsed on a firefighter from another company.  Engine 40 Captain Palmer called a “Mayday” and  Robbinsville IAFF members then assisted the Rapid Intervention Team  removing the victim and securing him into a stokes basket.  The firefighter suffered non-life threatening injuries.
