Englewood - Firefighters battled a quick 2nd alarm on the north side of town on Memorial Day afternoon. Around 4:30pm, Englewood firefighters were dispatched to 231 Prospect St for a reported fire. Upon arrival, command transmitted a working fire followed by a second alarm for smoke showing from a two story multiple occupied dwelling and fire burning though the exterior wall on the bravo side. Firefighters pulled two hand lines and stretched one to the first and one to the second and quickly knocked down the fire. Crews remained on scene checking for extension and hitting hot spots. No injures were reported and mutual aid from Hackensack, Teaneck and Tenafly assisted on scene.
