August 21, 2022

MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP, NJ (BURLINGTON)– A two-alarm fire destroyed at residence at 11 Sheffield Drive this evening around 6:44 p.m. Witnesses from the scene told MidJersey.News that the person in the home was able to make it out on their own after an off-duty firefighter that lives in the neighborhood kicked the door in. The fire went to two alarms before being brought under control. There was an extensive list of fire departments on scene and part of the list included Mansfield, Bordentown Township, Florence, Chesterfield, Westampton.

The off-duty firefighter that kicked the door in was from Hamilton Township, Mercer County.

Henry Roldan, an off duty Hamilton Firefighter (E14), lives a couple doors down from the fire and was first to arrive. He was told someone was still inside the burning home. He kicked in the door and alerted the occupant who was able to escape uninjured. Great work Henry! — Hamilton Township Professional Firefighters
