East Bergen firefighters battled a stubborn attic fire involving a Washington Avenue dwelling in Cliffside Park on the afternoon of October 23rd. The original FAST unit, Fairview Truck 2, was put to work. Fire units from Ridgefield, Edgewater, Palisades Park and Leonia were also on the scene. After the fire was extinguished, local firefighters returned to quarters to host their annual beefsteak dinner at the firehouse. Quite a few firefighters from the mutual aid companies that worked the fire also attended. A long day.
