On Saturday, November 4, at 9:45 p.m.,
Company 4 responded mutual aid to a working fire in a 2-story, wood-frame at 338
Glenwild Ave in Bloomingdale.
First to arrive on scene was Bloomingdale Police officer Gary Walker. He radioed
his dispatcher that he had a working fire. Officer Walker then attempted to
rescue a dog that was on the second floor. Walker was able to gain access
through a door from a deck on the C-side of the structure and proceeded to pull
the dog to safety.
Bloomingdale Fire Chief Barry Marciano arrived on scene and requested mutual aid
tankers from West Milford (Tanker 1 and 4) and Kinnelon (Tanker 2 and 33). Chief
Marciano also requested a FAST assignment from Pompton Lakes (Rescue 54). Also
assisting was an engine from Butler and Riverdale.
The home stood on a hill off of Glenwild Ave. Bloomingdale's second engine in
laid approximately 800 feet of five-inch supply line from the street up the long
windy gravel driveway to the fire scene. It took firefighters about a hour to
bring the blaze under control.
