At 8:22 PM on January 6, 2015, Millville Fire’s A Platoon was dispatched to a reported working fire in a vacant dwelling with structural damage.  Upon arrival, Captain Hallquist reported that the first floor was fully involved and then went into service with the blitz force.  A second alarm was then struck for a career staff recall.  Once there was more personnel on scene, other lines were pulled for the surround and drown and  Ladder 32’s ladder pipe was put in service to finish off the bulk of the fire.   Once the fire was brought under control, a search of the building was conducted and the fire investigation was started.  Crews cleared the scene around 01:45 AM and finished cleaning equipment and replacing hose at the firehouse around 3 AM.   At 10 AM, the investigators returned to the scene bringing a NJ State Division of Fire Safety Arson K-9 to assist in the investigation.  The crew cleared the scene at 11:30 AM.  This fire is still under investigation.  

Despite efforts of keeping the area salted, two firefighters were injured, one treated at the scene and the other was transported to Inspira, from slip and fall incidents.
