MAYWOOD, NJ - At 7:26 P.M. on the evening of January 12th, the Maywood Fire Department was dispatched to 837 Palmer Ave. for the report of a possible basement fire.

With the quick response from the fire department, everyone made it out okay and the fire was placed under control at 7:59 P.M. Assistant Chief Roy DeYoung had all units back up not too long after. Mutual aid from Saddle Brook, Hackensack and Rochelle Park assisted on scene while companies from Paramus, Lodi and Garfield covered at firehouses.
