TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Around 1:10 a.m. the Trenton Fire Department was dispatched to 517 Centre Street for a house fire. Arriving firefighters found fire though the roof on arrival and called for and “all hands” fire around 1:13 a.m. Within 10 minutes a 2nd Alarm was called sending more apparatus to the scene. The fire was reported under control around 2:00 a.m.
The initial dispatch sent Engine 3, 7, 10, Ladder 2, Rescue 1 and South Battalion to the fire. The all hands send Engine 1, Ladder 4, Special Services 1, and North Battalion Chief to the scene. The Second Alarm added Engine 6 and Engine 9 as Engine 8 and Ladder 1 relocated to Fire Headquarters. Signal 22 was called to the scene for support. Mutual aid fire departments responded to cover the city were Ewing, Lawrence, and Hamilton. (note we do not have access to the County or City CAD this is our best guess)
The fire was believed to be in previously burned buildings 513 though 515 Centre Street and burned an occupied building 517 Center Street since the Red Cross was called to temporarily relocate the displaced resident. There was a fire involving buildings multiple times and most recently on July 27, 2021.
