03/26/2023 – At 1:52 PM this afternoon the Hawthorne Fire Department was dispatched for a reported car fire on route 208 North. Upon arrival companies were met with a fully involved SUV that was extending to the trees and brush next to it. While fighting the fire the fuel tank also failed. All 5 companies worked together to have the fire under control and hazards mitigated as quickly as possible so Rt 208 could be reopened. Thank you to Glen Rock and Wyckoff Fire Depts for covering the town while all companies were committed.
