At 1:50PM, companies were dispatched to the 200 block of Garden Place in Oradell, for a reported structure fire. First arriving units reported smoke coming from the house and confirmed a working fire in a private dwelling. A deep seated fire was found in the attic that was quickly extinguished, however, unusual construction conditions in the attic required extensive overhaul operations. This 3rd Alarm Fire brought several mutual aid companies to the scene as well as to cover our firehouse. Companies operated on-scene for about two hours.
