HAMILTON TOWNSHIP (MERCER)– Firefighters in Hamilton have battled their third fire in under 24 hours, this time saving a commercial building.

Fire companies responded to Consumers Oil, 1473 Lamberton Road, around 11:50 am for a reported building fire. The caller reported there was active fire on the roof with contractors working. Companies arrived on scene with a light haze from the roof and the “all hands” was called for additional resources and manpower.

Crews went to work and located smoke coming from an unknown source. The source was quickly located, and water was put on the fire. The fire was placed under control around 12:30 pm.

No one was injured and the incident is under investigation.

This fire comes after crews responded to two separate house fires in less than a half hour last night. Both of the fires were quickly extinguished without any injuries.
