Tree into House


Saturday, February 3, 2018  REFD responded to the area of Lincoln Ave/Park Ave for reported utility wires down. Upon FD arrival they found that a large tree came down and took out the telephone pole, wires, transformers, and landed on a home. The residents of that home were not home at the time. While operating on scene another transformer exploded causing a power outage in the area. Bergen county Hazmat and New Milford Hazmat operated on scene due to the transformers leaking fluids. New Milford NJ Volunteer Fire Department
