SADDLE BROOK, NJ - A propane-fueled fire burned a shed to the ground in Saddle Brook while spreading to another shed and a house during the early afternoon of September 24th.

At 12:09 P.M., a general alarm was dispatched on a reported structure fire at 91 Birk Street. As Chief Jason Sabini signed on the air, a large column of smoke was visible and a working fire assignment was assigned which brought additional companies from Elmwood Park and Rochelle Park to the scene.

The chief arrived on scene to find the home, nearby the Garden State Parkway, on a dead-end street. A fully involved shed had already extended to a second shed and the rear of a private dwelling. During the early stages of the fire a propane tank let go. Lines were stretched from Engine 1 to knock down the fire, which took approximately 30 minutes.

Mutual aid at firehouses in coverage came from Lodi, Garfield and Fair Lawn. The Saddle Brook Volunteer Ambulance Corps also responded. No injuries were reported, and the Saddle Brook Fire Prevention Bureau is investigating the cause.
