Three Alarm Fire Destroys Home in Linden

By rlsmetro on

Firefighters in Linden battled a late-night fire that broke out inside a home in the city. 


Crews were dispatched to an address in the 800 block of Essex Avenue after receiving reports of a fire at approximately 12:40 a.m. 

Firefighters arrived and found heavy flames coming from a two-story siding-framed house. 


The intense fire coming from the roof forced firefighters to stretch several lines and activate a second and third alarm for manpower. 

The blaze was brought under control in about a half-hour. 

Officials reported non-life threatening injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
