At 23:52 on Tuesday 1/31/2012 the alarm for box 2440 in Tewksbury Township was sounded for a working attached garage fire extending into the residence. The alarm brought firefighters from Fairmount, Califon, Oldwick, Lebanon Boro and Pottersville to the scene. Due to the lack of hydrants in the area, Hunterdon County tanker task force East was activated.

Thanks to an aggressive interior attack by the initial crews, the fire was contained to the garage area and the room above it.

With all Fairmount fire units operating at the scene, an engine from Chester Fire Company was moved to Fairmount's firehouse to cover our area should any additional calls be received. An engine from Long Valley Fire Company was moved to Califon's firehouse to cover their area.

Fairmount units cleared the scene at about 4:00am which made for a long day at work for all the volunteers that responded.
