Structure Fire Amid Winter Storm Riley

Posted on March 3, 2018

The fire company stayed busy throughout the day helping clear fallen trees from roadways and responding to several wire fires. At 18:27, the Washington Township Fire Department and Long Valley First Aid were dispatched to North Mount Lebanon Road for the structure fire. Schooleys Mtn Chief 1 arrived first and confirmed a working fire in the basement. Due to poor weather conditions and treacherous and closed roadways, Tri-County and Hackettstown Fire were requested. Tri-County was first to arrive and made a quick knock on the fire before significant damage occurred. Long Valley Engine 1-2 assisted with salvage and overhaul before being requested to another incident in the township. The First Aid Squad assessed 6 occupants and 2 dogs of the house and no persons or pets required transport.
