Structure Fire 

Forest Hill Park 11-18-06


On Saturday, November 18, at approximately 2 p.m., West Milford Fire Company 1, 2 and 4 were dispatched for a report of a working structure fire on Apple Tree Lane in W. Milford Twp.

When Engine 1 arrived on scene they confirmed a fully involved structure. The abandoned house sat behind another house about 600 feet off the road, and at the end of a driveway that was overgrown with small brush.

Firefighters had to hand-lay (through the woods) a 3-inch line that was reduced via a gated-Y to two 1.75-inch attack lines.

A draft site was established by Engine 2 at a nearby lake and WMFD's Tanker 1, 2 and 4, and Tanker 33 from Kinnelon supplied E-1 with water.

It took firefighters about an hour to bring the blaze under control. The fire is under investigation by W. Milford Fire Marshal Mike Woch.
