HAMILTON - At 16:00 companies were dispatched to 54 Limewood Drive for a reported dwelling fire.  Engine 40, Engine 12, Tower 17 and RIT Engine 19 were the initial companies assigned to the box.  Approximately 2 minutes later, after receiving numerous 911 calls reporting the fire, Mercer County Central dispatched the remaining companies filling out the first alarm.  Engine 18, Truck 14, Special Services 15 and RIT Engine 16 were assigned.
Tower 17 arrived first and reported a 2 story split level, frame dwelling with heavy fire to the rear of the house.  Engine 40 arrived within 30 seconds and stretched a 2 ½” line to the front door.  As the line was brought up to the front of the house, the front storm doors failed and fire was visible out the front doors and on both levels inside the house.  Engine 12 arrived within the next minute, secured a water supply for E40 and stretched a second 2 ½” line.
Quick work was made of a well advanced fire by the first arriving companies.
The origin of the fire was an ATV that the homeowner was working on on the rear patio.

Eleven people, ten of them from one side of a duplex, were displaced following a two-alarm fire in the township this morning, Red Cross officials said

HAMILTON – Eleven people, ten of them from one side of a duplex, were displaced following a two-alarm fire in the township this morning, Red Cross officials said.

All but one Hamilton fire company responded to the blaze, which was electrical in nature and began on the second floor, Mercerville Capt. Chris Tozzi said.

Crews were called out to the first block of Hillhurst Avenue following multiple 911 calls just after 10 a.m.

“We turned the corner, we had heavy smoke across the street,” Tozzi said.
Firefighters found heavy flames on the second floor, which they were able to knock down. Units battled a blaze that spread to the adjacent structure and onto the third floor of both homes, finally bringing the scene under control at 11:06 a.m.

Both the second and third floors of the homes sustained heavy damage, Tozzi said.

Truck Fire Challenges Local Firefighters
 


June 8, 2011 – Firefighters from Robbinsville Township and Bordentown Township battled a major tractor trailer fire on the New Jersey Turnpike amid blistering temperatures of 98° Fahrenheit.

Robbinsville and Bordentown firefighters were called to the mid-afternoon blaze at mile marker 58.0 southbound and arrived to find a car carrier on fire with four cars on the trailer fully involved in flames.  The driver of the truck said the fire started in the brakes of the trailer and quickly spread to the cars.  

Recognizing the need for additional water supply and manpower, assistance was immediately requested for extra companies to respond.  Water tenders from Upper Freehold and Crosswicks and one engine from Hamilton Township District 9 responded to assist.  Crosswicks’ Tender 261 and Hamilton Township Engine 19 were able to stage on Uncle Pete’s Road and hand stretch a supply line to Robbinsville Engine 40 while Tender 82-1 from Upper Freehold responded directly onto the Turnpike.

Firefighter rehab was performed at the scene by EMTs from Capital Health System.  There were no injuries.  Senior Fire Captain Dennis Symons was the incident commander.
