BERGENFIELD, NJ - Firefighters battled their second fire in two days as crews battled a bedroom fire on the rainy Sunday afternoon of April 11th.

Bergenfield firefighters were dispatched around 2:15 P.M. for a home filling with smoke at 3 Coyne Ct., and an unknown source of the smoke. While en-route, command updated the address to 33 Coyne Ct., and Chief Naylis arrived on scene with smoke showing from the second floor.

A second-alarm was transmitted as Ladder 1 arrived on scene and entered the building to perform a search as Engine 1 arrived and stretched a one-and-three-quarter inch line through the front door.

During searches, the ladder company located a fire in a second floor bedroom and quickly extinguished it with the first hand line. A back up line was stretched and additional crews opened up and checked for further extension.

Mutual aid from Dumont, Englewood and New Milford assisted on scene. No injuries were reported, and the fire was under control within an hour.
