Both members are to be congratulated for their commitment, sacrifice and the loyalty shown to the fire company and the citizens of the towns we serve.

Tewskbury Township Fire 3/30/2012

Posted on March 31, 2012

On 3/30/2012 at 12:56am the pagers sounded for box 24-05; fire through the roof.  While in route to the location, the call was updated to a fully involved structure fire. The first units on scene found fire engulfing the rear portion of the roof of a two story wood frame house.  The fire was held to the originally involved section of the roof and attic areas.

In order to fight this fire in an area with no hydrants, the Hunterdon County Tanker Task Force East was activated. A dump site was located at the intersection of Potterstown and Round Top Roads. To supply the water to the fire scene, 1300' of 5" hose was laid.

Fairmount units were among the last to clear the scene at 5:25am. Units returned to the firehouse where another hour was spent getting everything ready for the next call. Volunteer members left the firehouse at 6:20am, just in time to go home grab a quick shower, and go to work.

Companies responding: Fairmount, Lebanon Borough, Oldwick, Pottersville, Califon, Annadale, High Bridge (RIT), North Branch (RIT), Tewksbury Rescue, Whitehouse Rescue, Quakertown Rescue (Air Truck)
