Susan Drive Fire
On Friday September 10th the CTVFD responded to a call for a residential fire on Susan Drive. Upon arrival firefighters found that fire had reached the first and second floors of the home and the fire quickly reached three alarms.
Our thanks to the Green Village, Summit, New Providence, Madison, Berkeley Heights, Stirling, Morris Township and Morris Plains Fire Departments along with the Parsippany Rescue and Recovery Unit that provided mutual aid. The New Vernon and Cedar Knolls Fire Departments provided station coverage while the CTVFD was at the scene. The Chatham Township Police Department, Chatham Emergency Squad, and the Chatham Township Fire Marshall also assisted at the scene.
As Chief Matt Lemons stated, “thankfully there were no injuries reported by the residents or first responders. The cause and origin are under investigation.”
