(Photos) Fire Department Releases Information on Large Condo Fire

Early this morning Station 19-3 and Station 19-5 were dispatched to a deck fire in the Windmill Club. Due to multiple calls, Howell Police asked Chief 19-3-66 if they should fill the box alarm. The 1st alarm assignment was dispatched. Upon arrival, Chief 19-3-66 located a deck on fire with extension up the wall of the multi family residence. Command was established, a 360 was completed as well as evacuating neighboring units. Engine 19-3-75 with Lieutenant 19-3-71 secured a water source and stretched a line to the rear of of the building and began aggressively extinguishing the exterior fire while another crew stretched a backup line. Both crews then made entry into two separate units. Ladder 19-5-90 arrived on location and setup for roof operations on the front of the building. A second alarm was transmitted bringing in additional units from Freehold, Jackson, Lakewood and Brick. The fire was extinguished in both units and units cleared the scene after a few hours. The cause of the fire is being investigated by Howell Fire Bureau.
