Budd Lake Assists Flanders Fire

Posted on January 10, 2016

Flanders firefighters stopped a fire in a building at the JCC Metrowest Camp Deeny Ribeck Thursday night before it could do significant damage.

Nobody was hurt in the fire, which was reported about 5 p.m. in a building that houses a photo lab. Firefighters arrived at the facility on Flanders-Netcong Road to find flames shooting up from one corner of the building, but quickly knocked down the fire. The blaze was contained to that corner of the building.

Fire Chief Michael McDermott said accessing the building, which is in the back of the camp complex, was a challenge due to a lack of roadways and construction. He praised firefighters for quickly extinguishing the fire before it could spread further.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Mount Olive Township Fire Marshal’s office and the Mount Olive Police Department. No damage estimate was given.

The Flanders Fire Company #1 and Rescue Squad was assisted by the Budd Lake Fire Company, Budd Lake First Aid Squad, and firefighters from Chester, Hackettstown and Netcong.
