EWING TOWNSHIP (Mercer) – Ewing firefighters made quick work of bringing a smoky basement blaze under control this afternoon (Tuesday, Nov. 15). The fire involved a one-story home on Federal City Road, between Bunker Hill and Bull Run roads, where Ewing, Lawrence and Hopewell townships all meet. Dispatched about 4:35 p.m. in response to multiple 911 calls reporting smoke coming from the roof of the home, Ewing Township Fire Department personnel arrived on scene and quickly confirmed there was a working fire in the basement. Multiple hoselines were deployed, entry was forced into the home, and the hoselines were placed in service to extinguish the flames in the basement. Mutual aid firefighters from Lawrence Township and Pennington Borough assisted with completing searches of the smoke-filled home to confirm no one was inside and with ventilation efforts to clear smoke from the residence once the fire was extinguished. A Lawrence Township EMS ambulance crew stood by on scene but there were no reported injuries. The cause of the fire was under investigation by Ewing Township police and fire officials.
