On Jan. 31st 2019 @ 1133am, Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Co. was dispatched to a fully involved structure fire in Holgate. Both LBTPD and BHPD were on scene, before 1500 arrived and took command of the scene. Engine 1511 was the first to arrive shortly afterwards. Ladder 1515 arrived next and put the bucket directly on the house. The crew of 1515 immediately began checking neighboring houses for fire and extention. The crew of 1515 was met up by a crew from Station 46, who was parking their Ladder Truck adjacent to the structure fire. Multiple members and Apparatus pieces from Station 51, Station 49, Station 47 arrived shortly later and began working on getting the fire under control.
Once again we were fortunate enough to get assistance from the Ocean County Road Dept. Salt Truck.
