Firefighters Responded to Structure Fire Yesterday

FREEHOLD: The Freehold Township Ind Fire Company #1 shared the following information regarding a structure fire on Schank Rd yesterday.

On March 12, 2023 the Freehold Twp Independent Fire Co and mutual aid companies (Freehold Boro FD, Adelphia Fire Company, Gordon’s Corner Fire Company, and Freehold EMS) were dispatched to a structure fire. Upon arrival the first arriving Chief confirmed a working fire and then gave a size up to the Monmouth County Dispatch Fire Desk. Two attack lines were initially deployed and then a third for back up. The truck company gained access to the garage roof and then cut the roof open for ventilation.

An aggressive team effort kept the fire isolated to the garage and stopped it from spreading to the house. When the mutual aid departments were released the Freehold Twp Independent Fire Co remained on scene to assist the Monmouth County Fire Marshal’s Office. Monmouth County HAZMAT was requested to the scene to help mitigate a secondary issue. Englishtown FD also helped cover our town, as well as even took care of a call while we were working.
