Hoboken crime and fire action: January 16, 2011

Hoboken411 will keep a “running tab” of various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day today. This post will be updated and “bumped” periodically.

  • 4:50pm: Oven fire 800 Jackson Street
    Fire alarms activated at 800 Jackson – 7th Floor. Reports of an “oven fire” which activated sprinklers. Maybe “cooking classes” should be required before living in multiple unit dwellings in cities like Hoboken?
  • 2:45pm: Indoor Grilling sets off fire sprinklers
    Some geniuses at 402 Madison St. thought that Sunday Football wouldn’t be complete without a BBQ. However, they decided “to fire up the barbie” INSIDE. Great. Fire sprinklers go off – put out the fire, and damage the building. Brilliant!

  • 3:15am: Street Fight
    Big fight at 3rd and Jackson – multiple units responding – you think it was just pure passion – or was some external fluid involved?

    Reports of a “street fight” at Bahama Mama’s.
  • 2:30am: HIT AND RUN
    2nd and Park: Hit and Run auto accident – cars “mangled” – HPD investigating… gotta love the nutty juice!
