Our brothers & sisters of the Perth Amboy Fire Department faced a tough challenge early this morning. Luckily they escaped with only minor burns after a flashover occurred.On 2/2/18 at 0307, the department responded to a building fire at 109 Commerce Street. Arriving crews were met by heavy fire conditions on all three floors of the structure. The Truck 2 crew entered the building to search for two confirmed trapped victims. Shortly after entering the building, a flashover occurred forcing members out. Attached are pictures of the turnout gear which show the effects of the flashover. Several members were treated for minor burns and have been discharged since. They are all home safe. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims whose lives were lost at this tragic fire. ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday at 1915hrs a township general was dispatched to all three fire districts for a working structure fire on Kendall Road. Crews arrived to find heavy smoke pushing from the structure. Lines were stretched & the home was searched for occupants. It was determined the fire originated in the basement and extended to the first floor. The fire was extinguished and searches were negative. Luckily there were no injuries however the home sustained a large amount of water & smoke damage. Thank you to Old Bridge Volunteer Fire Department & Brookview Volunteer Fire Company for assisting on scene as well as our mutual aid companies that stood by in our quarters while we operated. ...

Last night we are were dispatched to an activated general fire alarm at the Days Hotel located on Rt 18. Chief 800 and Squad 806 with a crew of 6 arrived simultaneously. 800 received a report of a fire on the 4th floor of the hotel, the squads crew went upstairs and upon investigation found an air conditioning unit had caught fire but was already extinguished. The crew had a heavy smoke condition throughout the 4th floor and crews had to ventilate the hallway. Ladder 801 sent their crew with fans and forcible entry tools to find multiple rooms with smoke conditions. With the heavy smoke staying consistent Chief 800 requested Truck 709 from the Old Bridge Volunteer Fire Department . Good work to all crews who operated last night. It shows the importance of fire alarms and the necessity to evacuate even if you do not smell or see smoke. Everyone should be reminded to call 9-1-1 when there is a smoke condition or fire in a building. Great work again by all! #EBIFC #eastbrunswickfire ... See MoreSee Less

Congratulations to all!
A tremendous catch by our Brothers & Sisters in Georgia. In all, eight children were rescued from this apartment. Always remember to have an escape plan with a secondary means of egress from your residence. This includes fire escape ladders from a second or third floor.Video provided by IAFF Local 1492 showing a Dekalb County (GA) Fire Rescue Department captain catching a child dropped from a ladder during an apartment fire... ...
