The Millstone Township Fire Department was dispatched as part of the initial assignment for a smell of smoke in the residence at 71 Yellow Meeting House Road, Upper Freehold Township. Engine 3275 (South) arrived first due with a 1.5 story dwelling, smoke showing on side B. The engine crew stretched a line to interior and located a fire in the attic. As the crew was beginning to open up and attack the fire a smoke explosion occurred causing the side D attic wall to collapse from the residence. The engine crew held their position and knocked the bulk of the fire down, assisted by Engine 8281 (Upper Freehold) and Truck 3915 (Plumsted). Tankers 3296 and 3295 arrived and assumed water supply. Additional units operating included Engine 54 (Jackson Mills), Tanker 8296, Tanker 3918 and Engine 19 (Hamilton #9) as the RIT.
