On Thursday, March 14th 2013 shortly after 2030hrs the Passaic NJ Fire Department responded to 81 4th Street for a reported fire. On arrival first due units found heavy fire showing from the 2nd floor windows of a 2sty brick 2-family OMD. A 2nd alarm was requested on arrival due to threatened exposures and multiple reports of trapped occupants. Crews attempted to make the 2nd floor however were pushed back by heavy fire conditions. Quick outside operations darkened fire enough to allow a re-entry. Crews knocked down remaining fire relatively quickly and searches proved negative.
