Tinton Falls EMS-South responded to Asbury Park for a multi-alarm fire. 

Taken from the Asbury Park Press:

A woman and her granddaughter escaped injury Wednesday when a fire broke out in the basement of their home at 1026 Sewall Ave.

Fire spokesman Garrett Giberson said the blaze which started in the left-side home of a two-and-a-half story duplex worked its way up through the open bays behind the walls to the attic and roof areas, making it a difficult fire to extinguish quickly, authorities said.

Bobbie Tyler, 43, said she was sleeping on the second floor and that she, her five-month-old granddaughter and occupants in the adjacent home escaped injury.

Altogether, six tenants were displaced, three from 1026 Sewall, and three from 1028. They were being assisted by the Red Cross, Giberson said. The Red Cross Jersey Coast Chapter reported Wednesday night that the displaced people included two adults and four children and that the families were provided food, clothing and hotel accommodations.

Forty firefighters from the city and neighboring units from the area rapid intervention team responded when the call came in at 12:29 p.m., Giberson said. The Monmouth County EMS Task Force also responded.

A Neptune firefighter was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune to be treated for chest pains, and an Asbury Park firefighter was transported to the same hospital to be treated for heat exhaustion and dehydration, Giberson and Asbury Park Fire Chief Kevin Keddy said.

The duplex is next door to the house where 24-year-old Nijed J. Johnson was killed while sitting on his front porch in the middle of the afternoon Sept. 14. The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office this week said they believe Johnson was not the intended victim. Two days later police were forced to return to that block when shots were fired, but did not hit anyone.

Several members of the city police department and Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office were on the street once again during Wednesday’s fire.

“I don’t think the fire has anything to do with that (the shootings),” said Tyler, who escaped the burning home.

Giberson would not comment, saying only that there’s always a police and prosecutor presence at fires of this size.

The 1026 residence had fire damage to the attic area, first- and second-floor walls. Parts of the roof of both homes were damaged, and both had heavy smoke and water damage. The owner of the duplex is Michael Andrews, Giberson said.

The cause of Wednesday’s fire is under investigation by city and Monmouth County law and fire officials.
