On Monday, February 16th 2009 during shift change the Passaic NJ Fire Department responded to 197 Dayton Ave on a reported fire. First due Deputy-3 called a 2nd alarm on arrival as he found heavy fire blowing out of the top floors of a 2.5sty frame. A 3rd alarm was called shortly thereafter as fire was impinging on both exposure buildings. Companies quickly put 2.5” hand lines into operation and were able to contain the fire to the building of origin. There were no reported injuries and the earlier reported missing occupants were all accounted for.
