Wallington, NJ - Firefighters doused a late-night commercial blaze in Wallington on the evening of January 14th. A smoky fire broke out at a scaffolding company shortly before 10:30 P.M. Assistant Chief Brian Batchelor came across heavy smoke issuing from a building at 30 Midland Ave. and radioed the alarm. A quick response made quick work of this fire, as it was declared under control within a half hour by orders of Chief of Dept. Chris Sinisi. Mutual aid from Rutherford, East Rutherford, Garfield and Passaic assisted on scene, while companies from Carlstadt, Lodi and Wood-Ridge covered at firehouses.
