RIDGEWOOD, NJ - Ridgewood firefighters made a good stop on a basement fire before the flames spread to the upper floors on August 5th. At approximately 8:40 A.M., companies were sent to 377 Beveridge Rd. and had smoke showing from a two-and-a-half-story frame dwelling. Command reported a working basement fire and initiated a platoon recall. Two lines were stretched in the front door and advanced to the basement. A second-alarm was transmitted for coverage at fire headquarters with several being re-directed to the fire scene. The fire was quickly knocked down and companies checked for extension. When none was found, the fire was able to be placed under control in just over a half hour. Ho-Ho-Kus and Waldwick assisted at the scene. No injuries were reported.
