The fire apparently broke out in the attic of a 2½-story, wood-frame home on Belford Avenue near Jackson Avenue around 1:30 p.m.
Firefighters knocked the two-alarmer down in minutes and had it under control in well under a half hour.
No injuries were reported.
Mutual aid responders at the scene or in coverage included firefighters from East Rutherford, Lyndhurst, North Arlington and Wallington.
A preliminary cause wasn't immediately determined.
