New Jersey Firefighters Douse Blaze

The fire was so intense that it melted a plastic fence which was 20 feet from the front of the house.


Firefighters were faced with heavy fire on arrival at a house located in the Packanack Lake area of Wayne Township, N.J. shortly before midnight Sunday, Sept. 21.

Neighbors reported seeing flames and hearing what sounded like fireworks or an explosion at 51 Forest Terrace. The fire was so intense that it melted a plastic fence which was 20 feet from the front of the house, and the house itself sustained heavy damage.

Companies made a quick knockdown and the fire was under control in less than an hour with no serious injuries reported.

An investigation is ongoing.
