YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: No serious injuries were reported after a small commuter bus caught fire outside a garden apartment complex in Fairview this morning.
Although original reports from the scene were of flames extending to a Crestview Gardens apartment building at 619 Fairview Avenue, police told CLIFFVIEW PILOT that only a utility pole and an awning caught fire.
The flames were extinguished within 15 minutes.
“As a precaution, we temporarily cleared area residents,” Deputy Police Chief Martin Kahn told CLIFFVIEW PILOT. “PSE&G was notified as was responding.”
A firefighter was fine after a blood-pressure check.
Two dozen or so firefighters from Cliffside Park, Fairview and Ridgefield responded.
