Tenafly, NJ - A fire that appeared to have started in the rear sunroom of a Tenafly home spread to a second floor bathroom before being extinguished on May 12th. Flames and heavy smoke were visible on arrival from the rear of 70 Woodland Park Dr. as the first fire units arrived at about 5:30 A.M. Mutual aid from Englewood and Dumont were called to the scene. Three lines were stretched and firefighters were quickly able to knock down the visible fire that had gutted the rear enclosed sunroom, extended through the roof and scorched the exterior of the second floor and entered the walls. Members opened up the second floor bathroom walls and stopped the fire spread. The fire was placed under control in less than one hour. No injuries were reported.
