Building Fire in East Windsor

Building Fire at McGraw Hill

East Windsor - November 30, 2007 - Firefighters from the Robbinsville Division of Fire responded to a building fire at McGraw Hill on Princeton-Hightstown Road in neighboring East Windsor Township.

Responding on the first alarm were East Windsor Fire Stations 42 and 46, Robbsinville Engine 40, Hightstown Ladder 41, Cranbury Engine 48 and Plainsboro Rescue 49 as the RIT (Rapid Intervention Team).

Robbinsville Engine 40 and Robbinsville Fire Chief Kevin Brink were the first units to respond and were advised that police on scene had confirmed a fire on the roof of a building under construction on the south side of the facility.  Hightstown’s fire chief arrived first reporting fire and heavy smoke on the roof and advised responding companies that he was receiving reports of “four people trapped on the roof.”

An engine from East Windsor responded with a “light” crew (driver and officer only) and laid a supply line from a yard hydrant.  Engine 40 arrived moments later and picked up the hydrant.  While the driver of Engine 40 hooked up to the hydrant for water supply, the crew of engine 40 carried a ground ladder to the building to attempt a rescue of the trapped workers on the roof.  Once it was confirmed that the roofers had escaped prior to Fire Department arrival, the crew of engine 40 returned to the rig for a high rise pack and additional tools and went to the roof to extinguish the fire.

The fire involved burning roofing materials that had been accidentally ignited by construction crews.  Crews on the roof also had to contend with fire burning in close proximity to several propane tanks.  Once the fire was extinguished, Engine 40 assisted with overhaul and was released from the scene after about an hour.
