Video above from homer218 and below from Andy T of a fire yesterday in a North Arlington, New Jersey (Bergen County) warehouse. 

Meghen Grant, South Bergenite:

A caller first reported the fire at the North Arlington warehouse at 29 Ewing Ave. at around 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 23. Fire and medical units from North Arlington, Lyndhurst, East Rutherford, Rutherford, Moonachie, East Newark and Belleville responded. Carlstadt and Wood-Ridge trucks were requested to cover the North Arlington fire house.

The business listed at the address is Par-Metal Products Inc., which sells metal chassis for electronics. 


Firefighters had to deal with icing, frozen gear and water supply concerns while battling four-alarm fire through single-digit temperatures at a metal shop in Bergen County, N.J.

The cold weather made it tough for crews responding to the blaze on Ewing Avenue in North Arlington, a dead-end industrial road near Schuyler Avenue. Fire officials on the scene said water supply, frozen gear and firefighters’ comfort and safety were big concerns.

    I LOVE the rainbow of apparatus paints!! Does each dept have their own color scheme?

    I’ve always believed that if the ladder pedestal operator can’t see the man on the tip, then he shouldn’t be up there. If something happens up there and the operator can’t see it, what happens to the tip man?…Anything from burns to falling off!!

    As slight wind shift at this scene could cover the aerial and crews in a thick deadly cloud of black smoke. Being ready for and anticipating such a shift is advisable. Crews are not prepared for this at this scene.Many of us have got caught up in this problem before. Being vigilant is a struggle sometimes.

    All I can say or think when viewing this video is – no wonder why we keep having line of duty deaths and injuries. No SCBA. No ladder belt. Zippers on TOG, I guess they are not needed anymore since coats aren’t zipped. WOW!

      Overwhelming this structure fire with staffing… not tactics and incident action plans… seems to be the order of business here. That black tornado emitting from the building should be a clue that the fire department delivered the greatest life hazard to this scene and are determined to expose as many unprotected firefighters as possible to it’s potentially deadly effects.
