Cresskill firefighters battled a fire at a local restaurant early Tuesday morning, August 18th, causing extensive damage to the kitchen area. Firefighters were requested to 15 East Madison Ave, The Farmhouse Restaurant, around 4:30 A.M. for a smoke alarm sounding. First arriving units found smoke showing from the side door and a working fire was transmitted. Dumont, Demarest, and a FAST Team from Tenafly assisted on scene as crews entered a door on the bravo side of the restaurant into the kitchen. The fire was quickly located and knocked down. Firefighters opened up and vented while checking for any extension. The fire was knocked down under a half an hour. No injures were reported.
