At approximately 4:57 AM Wednesday morning the Millstone Township Fire Department was dispatched to Carrs Tavern Road for a reported structure. 3267 (Jeff Wagner) arrived to an abandoned, single story residential home with heavy fire showing. A request to county dispatch to fill the box and request the Suburban Chief’s Tanker Task Force was made. The fire was placed under control in a short period of time while crews remained on scene to knockdown any hot spots. Thank you to all our mutual aid companies for their support.

The Millstone Township Fire Company joined with a number of other township groups and agencies to remember those who gave all defending our great nation. While Memorial Day represents the unofficial start to the summer it signifies the great sacrifice our men and women have given to all of us. Please keep them in your thoughts as they are true heroes.
