BEACHWOOD, NJ - At approximately 2:40 P.M. on August 3rd, the Beachwood and Pine Beach Fire Departments were dispatched to what was originally reported as a shed fire on the 200 block of Pennant Avenue. Beachwood police officers arrived and found that the incident was actually a house on fire on Neptune Avenue.

Being upgraded to a residential structure fire, the Manitou Park, Pinewald and Bayville Fire Departments were dispatched for assistance. Beachwood First Aid provided support on scene as well.

The fire was found to be a well involved rear porch that spread into the main portion of the home. All residents and pets had safely evacuated. The fire was quickly brought under control and extinguished. A neighboring home suffered heat damage to the exterior. No injuries were reported.

The fire is under investigation by the Ocean County Fire Marshal's Office and the Beachwood Police Department.
