This morning firefighters responded to Cherry Street in the Monmouth Mobile Home Park for a reported mobile home fire. While responding, Kendall Park Fire Department Deputy Chief Rob Cioffi observed a large smoke column in the sky and requested the 1st alarm be transmitted. Arriving fire units met heavy fire throughout the mobile home.
The fire was discovered shortly after 9 a.m. and quickly destroyed the home. All residents made it out safely and no injuries were reported. Kendall Park Fire Department Chief Chris Perez said 30-foot flames were shooting out of the center of the home when firefighters first arrived. “The fire was knocked down and under control in about 10 minutes”, Perez said. An adjacent mobile home along with a number of RVs and boats parked nearby also suffered heat damage from the fire.
The Kendall Park, Kingston, and Monmouth Junction Fire Departments along with Kendall Park First Aid Squad and the South Brunswick Police Department responded to the scene. North Brunswick Fire Company #2 and Franklin Park Fire Company covered the town while South Brunswick units operated at the scene.
