Jersey City firefighters battled a fire in a County Road junk yard, just off of Route 1 & 9, on the afternoon of March 12th. Due to water supply problems with some fire hydrants, a second-alarm was transmitted. Large diameter hose had to be stretched across Route 1 & 9, closing the major artery and creating a traffic nightmare, in the Heights section of the city.
