The first arriving fire unit – Assistant Department Chief Daniel Harker, Unit 34-67 – found a heavy smoke condition coming from a 2-1/2 story private dwelling.

Chief Harker transmitted a second alarm, which brings the entire Neptune Fire Department, mutual aid cover assignments and a Rapid Intervention (RIT) Team.

Unexcelled Engine 34-4-75 was first due and immediately stretched an 1-3/4 hoseline.

Unexcelled Tower Ladder 34-4-90 was the first due truck, and performed OV in coordination with the interior hoseline.

Firefighters assigned to Ladder 34-4-90 also assisted with deploying a second hoseline, with concerns of fire spread in the “balloon construction”.

Shark River Hills Engine 34-3-76 provided water supply to the hydrant.  Station 3 members also performed searches, horizontal ventilation and overhaul.

Two civilians were treated by EMS and transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

The fire was brought under control after approximately 45 minutes, and is under investigation by the Neptune Fire Marshal and Monmouth County Fire Marshal’s Office.

Unexcelled and Shark River Hills fire companies were assisted by Neptune City Fire Department, Liberty Fire Company, Hamilton Fire Company, Neptune EMS, Neptune OEM and Neptune Police.  Tinton Falls Fire Company, Wayside Fire Company and Asbury Park Fire Department responded to provide a Rapid Intervention Team.
