Newark firefighters had a busy night battling four fires in 24 hours and the second one of the tour would be a 2nd alarm fire in a supermarket in the west side of the city.
A full box was dispatched around 10:15 for a reported fire at 910 18th ave. On arrival of FD, fire and smoke were visible from the bravo side of the 1 story 100x75 commercial building. The fire, located on the west side of the building, was burning though the roof and involving AC units on the roof. All members would be removed from the roof and from the building and companies would go to an exterior attack as well as a 2nd alarm being transmitted. One ladder pipe and multiple handlines would be put into operation and hold the fire to the B/C corner of the building. No injuries were reported and the fire took just over an hour to bring under control.
