Quick response and effective teamwork were on full display as East Orange firefighters tackled a house fire on Wednesday night.

The incident occurred at 43 Eppirt Street, with reports of a fire coming in around 10:40 p.m.

Upon arriving at the scene, firefighters were met with a challenging situation as heavy flames were already engulfing a portion of the three-story wood-framed home.

Without hesitation, the dedicated firefighters extended lines to get water onto the blaze, then entered the premises to check for any trapped or injured occupants.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries reported, and the fire, despite its original intensity, was brought under control in less than half an hour.

Fire investigators are currently working to determine the cause of the fire.

Firefighters' swift response ensured the fire did not spread to neighboring homes, potentially preventing further damage and injuries.
