August 2, 2020

The first 9-1-1 call was received by the Robbinsville Township Police Department at 12:14 pm reporting a “shed fire” in the 300 Block of Edgebrook Road. Upon arrival police and firefighters found a pole barn with heavy smoke and fire.  An “all hands” sending a full first alarm was sent including tankers since that is a non-fire hydrant area of the township. Mutual aid was dispatched from Hamilton Township Fire Department, Hope Fire Company of Allentown, Millstone Township Fire Department, Chesterfield Fire Department and East Windsor Fire Company.

Firefighters laid into the scene with a 5” supply line and stretched a 2 ½ and 1 ¾ handlines. Tankers were set up on Edgebrook to supply water to bring the fire under control. Firefighters brought the fire under control within 15 minutes just as beams of the lightweight wood truss started to burn away.

The Robbinsville Township Police and fire investigators from the Mercer County Fire Marshall’s Office and Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office responded and determined that the fire was of accidental and non-suspicious, according to police.

As Robbinsville firefighters were still on scene at the first fire on Edgebrook Road helping with the investigation and overhaul another fire was reported on Richardson Road almost exactly an hour later.

At 1:15 pm the Robbinsville Township Police 9-1-1 dispatcher received several calls reporting a fire in the 100 block of Richardson Road between Stanley and Lambert Lane. The West Windsor Fire Department was covering Robbinsville Township and responded to the scene and reported a garage fire. Hamilton Township Fire Department and Hope Fire Company of Allentown was returning or just returned from the first fire and responded to the scene.

Firefighters pulled 1 ¾ hand lines and hooked to a hydrant right in front of the home and quickly brought the fire under control.

The Robbinsville Township Police and fire investigators from the Mercer County Fire Marshall’s Office and  Prosecutor’s Office also responded to the second fire for the investigation, this fire was also determined to be accidental and non-suspicious, according to police.
