ROBBINSVILLE (Mercer County) - March 29, 2008 - Career firefighters from the Robbinsville Division of Fire responded to a fire in the Mercer Mobile Home Park.

Robbinsville Township dispatchers received numerous 911 calls reporting a fire in a shed possibly extending to the home.  Fire personnel were dispatched to the home on Beech Street at approximately 8:00 AM.  Since several members of the off-going platoon of career firefighters were still in the station, IAFF members were able to immediately respond with two engines (Engine 40 and Engine 401) and one ambulance instead of the usual one engine and one ambulance.  Engine 40 arrived to find an 8 x 10 shed well involved less than two feet from the house.

Engine 40 stretched an attack line and started knocking down the fire.  They were backed up by the crew from the rescue.  Engine 401 arrived less than a minute behind Engine 40 and while the driver(s) established a water supply the crew from E401 went into the home to check for fire extension.  There was no extension to the house and only minor damage to the exterior window casings from radiant heat.

The bulk of the fire was knocked down prior to the arrival of mutual aid companies.  Firefighters from Hamilton Township FMBA Local 84 (Engine 19 and Ladder 17) assisted with overhaul and were released shortly after they arrived.

Several neighbors praised Robbinsville’s firefighters for their rapid response and quick knockdown.  The homeowner was especially thankful to IAFF members for preventing the fire from spreading to her home.  The cause of the fire is unknown and is being investigated by IAFF Local 3786 inspector/investigator Captain Dennis Symons.
