North Haledon 1144 High Mountain Rd 12-27-11
North Haledon makes a quick stop despite water problems...... The North Haledon (NJ) Fire Department was dispatched at approximately 12:00 noon on December 27 for a reported house fire at 1144 High Mountain Rd. First due companies were faced with heavy fire conditions on the A/B corner of the single story ranch home. A water supply was set up from a hydrant a ¼ mile away at Sicomac Rd. but the hydrant was found to have very low water pressure. A second alarm was issued for mutual aid to the scene as companies operated with tank water making an aggressive, offensive attack on the blaze. A Franklin Lakes engine laid in with an LDH from a hydrant near Reservoir Dr. (nearly ½ mile away) to supply additional water to the scene. Additional crews from Paterson, Totowa and the West Paterson Fire Department, also assisted at the scene; while Hawthorne and Prospect Park companies covered the Borough. The fire was declared under control in about an hour. Although the home sustained substantial fire damage in the area of origin, the rest of the structure was spared and only subjected to smoke and some water damage. It is the opinion of this author; that through the swift actions and expertise of the firefighting crews, a much less favorable outcome was averted. ‘Nice stop NHFD…job well done!’ EMTs from the Haledon Ambulance Squad and the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department Ambulance stood by at the scene. There were no reported injuries. The cause and origin of the fire remain under investigation. Story by: Ron Johnson. These photos were taken by Roy Van De Voort.
