Last evening at 8:58pm the Green Township Fire Department was dispatched for a working structure fire behind Pub 517.
Chief Dooley and Capt. Rose signed into service and upon arrival Capt. Rose reported a fully involved structure at the top of the hill behind the pub in the Allamuchy Mountain State Park Area. At the same time, Allamuchy FD was arriving as they were dispatched simultaneously with GTFD. Both departments began operations and a second alarm was immediately dispatched along with Forest Fire and a tanker task force due to the location and lack of water source available.
As first due units from 95 and 91 fire started to arrive, handlines and water supply operations started to be established. Two fill sites were established for the tanker task force, one at the Allamuchy School and the second at the Lake Tranquility fill site.
At approximately 12am the fire was declared under control and mutual aid companies started to be released.
Special thanks to all mutual aid companies that responded on behalf of 95 and 91 fire.
