Firehouse

October 2013

Two firefighters were injured while battling a basement fire in Woodbridge, NJ, on Aug. 14, 2013. A “Mayday” was given and the two firefighters went out windows. One dropped to the ground and the other went down a ladder. One civilian was injured in the fire, which heavily damaged the basement. Several departments responded on mutual aid to the scene or covered empty fire stations.
