Hasbrouck Heights, NJ - A two-alarm blaze broke out on the second floor of an unoccupied, two-and-a-half story home in Hasbrouck Heights on the evening of November 16th. Shortly after 7:00 P.M., companies were dispatched to 312 Henry Street for reports of smoke coming from a home. Police officers arrived and confirmed a working fire. Visible fire venting out of second floor windows greeted first due units. A second-alarm was struck, bringing mutual aid companies from Little Ferry, Wood-Ridge, Moonachie, South Hackensack and Wallington to the scene. Crews had the fire knocked down in under an hour. A third-alarm brought companies to cover the borough at fire headquarters. One injury occurred when a firefighter fell through the second floor and suffered minor injuries. Additional mutual aid covering came from Carlstadt, Lodi, Garfield and others. The cause of the fire wasn't immediately determined.
