TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Four rowhouses on Chase Court, located off Chase Street near Brunswick Avenue, were damaged during a two-alarm fire early this morning (Dec. 7, 2021). The blaze was reported shortly before 6 a.m. and first-due fire companies immediately transmitted the “All Hands” signal for a working fire. It was reported that there was heavy fire on the first and second floors of one of the homes in the middle of the row, with flames extending via the cockloft into the attached houses. A short time later a Trenton EMS ambulance was requested for a reported burn victim, however it was not immediately clear if that individual was a resident or a firefighter. Much later during the incident, additional EMS units were called to the scene for a firefighter with a burned hand and another firefighter with a shoulder injury after a reported floor collapse. The second alarm was sounded at 6:20 a.m. for additional manpower. It wasn’t until 7:35 a.m. that the fire was officially declared under control.
