Closet Fire Reported in Red Bank this Morning

Just after 10 am today, an automatic fire alarm signaled a report of a closet fire at 32 Monmouth St., in the location of Antoinette Boulangerie and office spaces. The Red Bank Fire Department has reported to the scene.

According to Red Bank Borough Fire Marshal Tommy Welsh, contractors used a smoke machine to test the plumbing system. This was done so improperly, resulting in the smoke charge igniting. Smoke reached the second and third floors of the building, setting off the alarm. The building was evacuated. No injuries have been reported.
