At 11:45 hours, Oradell was requested to respond to Canterbury Lane in New Milford for a working fire. A fire on a deck had extended into the interior of a condo complex. Chief 20, Chief 201, Engine 23, & Squad 22 responded to the scene to assist with searching for victims, laddering, fire suppression, and overhaul. The incident was escalated to a 3rd Alarm, bringing several additional departments to the scene before the fire was brought under control.
On Tuesday around 18:00 hours, the fire department was dispatched to the 200 block of Kinderkamack Road for a reported house fire which was quickly confirmed by Oradell Police, who also advised of an occupant possibly trapped inside.
Oradell Squad 22 was the first arriving unit, secured a water supply and stretched an initial attack line to the front of the structure to begin knocking down the fire. River Edge Ladder 1 arrived on-scene shortly after (already out on another alarm) and quickly worked to get a ground ladder around the rear of the building where a trapped occupant was reported to be located. Members of Squad 22 and Ladder 1 were able to successfully remove the trapped occupant from a roof in the rear of the building.
Several mutual aid companies operated on-scene to bring the fire under control within two hours.
