Firefighters responded to a dryer fire at a Franklin Township, Hunterdon County, home on Sunday night, April 26.
Emergency responders were dispatched at 11:23 p.m. to 140 Sidney Road. Radio reports indicated heavy smoke coming from the basement. The fire was quickly extinguished and no injuries were reported.
The dryer was removed from the basement and the residence ventilated. The homeowners were home at the time of the incident.
Responding to the call were Franklin Township Police Department, Quakertown Fire Department, Clinton Fire Department, Annandale Hose Company (Clinton Township), High Bridge Fire Department, Lebanon Borough Fire Department and Clinton Rescue Squad.
It was more than just a fund-raising day here at CFARS. In addition to normal duty crews, we had 3 community events that we participated in, including the Clinton Township Country Run 5k & 15k, the 7th Annual Clinton Township Community Day, and Rutgers Day 2015. We are happy to give back and support the communities that support us. And don't forget, we have a current Volunteer Membership Drive occurring now.

As our initial NJ EMT program at the CFARS EMS Training Center students head into their last month of training, they had a lesson on vehicle and technical rescue & extrication last evening. After a review of incidents they might respond to and their roll at the scene, the students got some "Hands On" time with basic extrication actions and tools.
