April 26, 2020

ROBBINSVILLE TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–The Robbinsville Township Fire Department responded to the New Jersey Turnpike in the area of the 64.5 North bound outer lanes mile marker for a vehicle fire at 3:30 pm. A Jeep pulling a horse trailer with a horse inside caught fire and was partly extinguished using a dry chemical extinguisher prior to the fire department arrival. Firefighters found some small areas of the vehicle that still needed further extinguishment and overhaul, any smoldering spots were snuffed. The horse trailer and vehicle were towed to a local shop for repairs. The horse in the trailer was ok and most likely will be spending the night at a local farm while vehicle is repaired to continue the journey.

Hightstown Fire Company and Hope Fire Company of Allentown also responded to the scene.
