    Cell Tower Fire in New Jersey

     

    It's not common, and quite frankly the first that most of us has seen - but we were dispatched for a cell phone tower fire. The tower was near the border of Wall, Tinton Falls and Neptune, NJ.

     

    A lot of variables play into attacking a fire such as this, including weather, structural damage suffered by the tower from the heat, the high voltage lines that feed the tower, etc...

     

    Companies were very cautious and placed the safety of first responders first. As there were no immediate dangers to civilian life and property, extra care was taken prior to engaging the fire.

    Fire Departments from multiple towns responded, including:

     

    Wayside Fire Company - Tinton Falls, NJ

    Hamilton Fire Company - Neptune, NJ

    Shark River Hills Fire Company - Neptune, NJ

    Unexcelled Fire Company - Neptune, NJ

    Glendola Fire Company - Wall, NJ
