CEDAR GROVE, NJ - On June 27th at 10:47 P.M., the Cedar Grove FD was dispatched to a reported structure fire at 16 Tiffany Ct. On arrival, heavy fire was showing on the 'Charlie/Delta' side, and coming through the roof.

Occupants were confirmed out of the building, and several attack lines were stretched to the door, as well as several two-and-a-half inch lines. During a primary search, a few domesticated birds and a cat were removed from the structure without injury.

After interior crews were unable to make significant progress with the fire, an evacuation was ordered. Minutes after all members were clear of the interior, a collapse of the ceiling and roof occurred. Defensive operations began and the fire was placed under control around 3:30 A.M. No injuries were sustained by residents or first responders.

The fire reached a total of five alarms. On-scene mutual aid was provided by North Caldwell, Verona, Montclair, Fairfield, West Caldwell, Essex Fells, Roseland, Little Falls, and a Bloomfield Cascade unit. Station coverage was provided by West Orange, Bloomfield and Nutley. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
