On December 30 at 20:48, we were dispatched for a reported fire on the fourth floor of the Doubletree Hotel on Route 1. Chief 240 immediately requested his backup company (Kendall Park Fire Company) to respond. Upon arrival, it was reported that the fire had been extinguished. Crews went to the fourth floor and confirmed the fire was out. The crews checked for extension and secured the power to the air condition/heating unit that was involved. Once everything was secured and deemed safe, the guests were allowed to return to their rooms.
In addition to Chief 240, Deputy Chief 250, Engine 4 (244), Engine 5 (245) and Rescue 2 (242) made the response, along with Kendall Park Chief 220, Ladder 223 and Engine 221.
We thank them for their assistance as well as South Brunswick police and South Brunswick EMS. Deputy Fire Marshall 303 responded and conducted the investigation.
