Electrical Fire 909 Clinton St.

7/24/2008:

2am is considered “evening” for me, and as always, I have the Live Hoboken Police and Fire Scanner on.. (it’s becoming razor blades to my ear drums at this point), but I heard something of interest a few minutes ago…

“909 Clinton Street, electrical fire in apartment 3B…”

From the sounds of it, there seems to be some “charring” near a wall outlet, and nothing serious, as all companies have “returned to quarters.” Crews on scene used their trusty thermal imaging camera to ensure there was no fire creep in the walls.

However, some of you who’ve actually lived in Hoboken for a while might remember the 1998 inferno on the same block (marked by the X**) which destroyed three five-story buildings. You could feel the heat all the way in the middle of Columbus Park!
