More careless cooking!
Overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel this morning…
All bark and no bite
At approximately 9:50am today.
Reports of a “Working Fire” at 621 Garden Street.
Initial company on scene reported that the three-story ordinary residential building had “heavy smoke” emanating from the windows.
What it was:
Within a minute or two – it was determined that some “food on the stove” was burning and was extinguished upon arrival. After about 15 minutes, the building was ventilated and all companies returned to service.
Translation: Good job HFD for the quick response to yet another false alarm.
Someone needs to develop a “Pay Attention When Cooking” or “Be alert when playing with fire” awareness campaign. We already have campaigns for ridiculous “common sense” aspects of our lives, like seat belts, looking both ways when crossing the street, why not have another?
That is, unless Darwin’s Law should prevail.
