Hillside, NJ - A two-alarm fire tore through a home at 56 Ridgeway Ave. on Saturday, February 8th. At around noon fire units were dispatched to a reported fire and upon arrival they reported heavy fire on the second floor. A second-alarm was transmitted, bringing Union and Irvington fire units directly to the scene. A quick knock down led to extensive overhaul as fire had extended into the walls and attic area. Solar roof panels restricted some of the vertical ventilation of the home. There were occupants, but everyone was able to exit the structure with no injuries reported. Investigators were working to determine a cause.
