House Catches Fire in Tinton Falls

Tinton Falls August 12 2019 House Fire

On the afternoon of Monday, August, Wayside Fire Company No. 2 was dispatched to Cannonball Drive (1-story wood-frame) for a residential structure fire.

Chief 2-66 arrived on scene and confirmed a fully involved working garage fire with multiple vehicles involved, striking the Box Alarm (General Alarm for the District as well as RIT and Covers). Ladder 2-90 and Engines 1-78, 1-80 quickly arrived on scene establishing a 5″ water source and stretching multiple hand-lines to the exterior and interior of division 1 in an aggressive operation.

Along with crews from Ladder 4-91, Engine 3-76, and Asbury Park Truck 83-89, the fire was quickly brought under control by master streams due to an internal collapse pf the structure which caused a defensive operation. Chief 2-66 had command of the incident.
