Woman badly burned on Jefferson St.
10 minutes in the past – a call was made for a “still alarm of fire” at 514 Jefferson Street, third floor. (A still alarm is a fire alarm transmitted silently, usually by telephone, rather than by sounding the conventional signal or bell apparatus. Still alarms are commonly used to alert fire and medical personnel as to what type of emergency they are responding to.).
However, while no fire was reported, an elderly woman was badly burned (45% of the body – waist up) with 2nd and 3rd degree burns. She was taken directly to Hoboken University Medical Center – without waiting for medics, the burns were that serious.
Hope everything is alright!
