Upon the arrival of Allamuchy’s engine 91-63, the siding of the garage was on fire due to a mulch fire. The fire quickly spread up the siding of the structure, but thanks to an alert neighbor, the bulk of the fire was knocked down with a garden hose prior to the fire truly advancing.
Firefighters conducted overhaul on the structure hitting any remaining hotspots, and further extinguished the mulch fire.
Units were clear of the scene approximately 60 minutes after dispatch.
Allamuchy-Green 1st Aid Squad and Hackettstown Fire Department assisted with the fire, and the Allamuchy Ladies Auxiliary provided water and food.
