Firefighters put out an evening blaze at a laundromat with no injuries, according to Bayonne Deputy Fire Chief Bill Bartos.

At 10:53 p.m. on March 14, the BFD was dispatched to 186-188 Avenue F on a report of fire. Units found fire coming from a side window of a laundromat.

The three-story building contained the laundromat on the first floor and eight residential units above. All occupants were safely evacuated.

Firefighters used two handlines to extinguish the blaze which was confined to the business. The fire was declared under control at 11:22 p.m.

The Building Department advised that all occupants could return to their homes once fire operations were completed.

β€œFirefighters responded quickly and professionally, and their quick actions kept this fire from spreading further into this older building,” Bartos said. “Fortunately, all occupants were able to return home quickly.”

An investigation is underway, but the fire does not appear to be suspicious.
