At 10:07 pm we were dispatched to a working structure fire at 14 Franklin Street.
Upon arrival we found heavy flames and smoke coming from second floor windows. After we gained entry, we extinguished the fire and conducted searches of the entire multi-family home. Heavy fire damage occurred in the main fire apartment and water and smoke damage occurred in the others.
Thankfully all the residents as well as all the firefighters made it through the incident without any injuries.
We would like to thank all the other organizations who assisted us that night: The South Bound Brook Ladies Auxiliary, Somerset County Coordinators, The South Bound Brook Police Department, South Bound Brook OEM, The South Bound Brook Rescue Squad, Bound Brook Fire Department, Elizabeth Ave Fire Department, Somerset Fire and Rescue, Finderne Fire Department, Somerville-Hillsborough Rehabilitation Unit, and the Red Cross.
