Hillsborough Township Station 37 Fire

On March 22nd, firefighters from Station 37 were dispatched to a working fire in a dumpster around 0422 hours.

First-due units arrived and reported the fire was found throughout a large dumpster at a scrap metal business on Champlain Road.

Resources from Station 36 were also added to the call to respond to the fire incident for manpower and to bring additional resources.

Heavy equipment was brought to the scene, to pull apart the dumpster and allow it to be fully put out.

Firefighters would conduct extensive overhaul operations. This fire could have been much worse than it was and firefighters did an excellent job of keeping it from spreading to nearby exposures inside of the yard.
