There were no injuries reported from two, separate, one alarm fires in Bayonne on Friday. Chief Keith Weaver issued the following statement:
“The first fire was reported at 11:47 am at 1102 Avenue C. Firefighters arrived to find an active fire in a dryer of a laundromat. The business is on the first floor of a three-story building. Firefighters used a hand line to extinguish the blaze, which was contained to the business. Police and firefighters temporarily evacuated the residents of the apartments above, however, they were allowed to return a short time later. The fire was declared under control within 30 minutes of their arrival. A fire investigation is currently being conducted, however, it does not appear to be suspicious.”
The Chief continued, saying, “The second fire was reported at 4:43 pm at 185 West 22nd Street. Arriving units found a 30-yard construction dumpster, alongside a home, fully engulfed. Firefighters used hand lines to extinguish the blaze and kept it from spreading to the adjacent home. A fire investigation is currently underway.
Our firefighters quick and professional response to both of these blazes kept fire from spreading further into the structures and prevented injury to our residents.”
