Around 5pm this evening the Oradell Fire Dept was dispatched to an oven fire on Summit Avenue. Arriving Chief 20 discovered smoke showing and directed E24 to stretch in from the hydrant and stretch an attack line to the front door. Upon initial investigation crews found the fire contained to the oven, with a heavy smoke condition. T21 arrived and assisted with a vent and S22′s crew assisted in disassembling the stove and removing the contents.
As the warm weather arrives, so do the cool crisp nights and fire pit season. Here we have a few tips for your safety.
-Always place your fire pit away from your house, shed, deck or any other structure.
-Place them away from any trees or other vegetation.
-Never leave them unattended.
-Always make sure they are fully extinguished after use.
-Do not use any flammable liquids to light the fire (gasoline, lighter fluid etc.).
-Do not allow children to play near them.
-Always be cautious of where burning embers my land.
If you feel the fire has grown to large or out of control, dial 911 immediately.
