Bayonne firefighters quickly dealt with a one-alarm fire, according to Deputy Fire Chief Bill Bartos.

Firefighters were dispatched to 8 Roosevelt Terrace at 10:59 a.m. on a report of smoke alarms. Due to numerous 9-1-1 calls, it upgraded to a fire call.

Units found heavy smoke and fire on the side of 8 Roosevelt Terrace. Firefighters used several handlines to extinguish the July 25 blaze, which was declared under control at 11:30 a.m.

No injuries were reported. A fire investigation is underway, but the cause does not appear to be suspicious at this time.

“Today is another example of how our firefighters use their speed and skill to protect our residents,” Bartos said. “Although initial units were faced with heavy smoke and fire, they knocked this fire down with minimal damage to the interior of the home and kept the neighbor’s house from catching fire, in spite of their siding already melted from the radiant heat.”
