At 12:40 last night, Engine 51 responded mutual aid to a residential structure fire in the 3rd alarm on Hodge Rd. in Princeton. Engine 51 arrived just after 01:00 and staged the apparatus at the corner of Elm Rd. & Hodge Rd while the crew was sent to command for their assignment. The 3rd alarm had been requested by command for the additional manpower. Crews experienced issues controlling the fire due to the building construction. The fire was placed under control around 01:30. Engine 51 assisted with extensive interior overhaul operations and ground ladders. Station 51 members were on scene for 2 hours before command released all 2nd and 3rd alarm companies. Engine 51 was back in quarters by 03:45.
Pennington Fire Company will not release any additional information regarding this incident.
