SADDLE BROOK, NJ - Saddle Brook Firefighters doused an overnight fire in a building behind a Route 46 Mexican restaurant on March 13th. Just before 3:00 A.M., companies were dispatched to 304 9th St. on a reported fire. As companies arrived, they found smoke coming from the ceiling of the one-story building behind Taqueria Los Güeros, and had the flames knocked down in under 15 minutes. No injuries were reported. Mutual Aid included firefighters from Elmwood Park, Rochelle Park and Wallington. Members of the Saddle Brook Volunteer Ambulance Corps also responded. The Township Fire Prevention Office is investigating the cause, which could be an electrical fire in a wall that had extended into a void space.
