After returning from an oven fire on Amaryllis Avenue in Oradell earlier this afternoon, Car 202, Car 203, Tower 21, and Engine 23 were dispatched to a reported fire on Woodland Avenue in New Milford. Tower 21 arrived on scene and assumed the role of “first due truck” performing a search for victims and venting the structure to remove smoke and other toxic gases from the structure. Engine 23 performed overhaul, secured the gas and electrical utilities, as well as provided additional manpower for other tasks due to the high summer time temperatures today.
