Clinton St. Fire

Clinton St. Fire displaces families in Hoboken

Oh brother. Another fire in that building across the street from Columbus Park, which started around 6pm this evening.

This building has a history with fires, and almost the entire block once burnt down!

The last “major” fire took place back in March of 2012.

What do you think the deal is? Shoddy building construction? Or just careless tenants?

Fire near Hoboken Sunoco

Hoboken Fire near 13th & Willow (or Park)

At 9:30pm tonight Hoboken Fire Department was dispatched to the area of 13th & Willow with reports of a fire. At first they though the Sunoco Gas station was on fire – but now they think the warehouse building at 1302 or 1304 Park Ave. may be the one on fire.

Listen to the action live on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel.

Madison Street Fire was wind-swept

Hoboken Visuals: Madison Street Fire on 2/17

Here’s a short video clip of yesterday’s Madison Street Fire in Hoboken sent in by Hoboken411 reader David. He took it from over the border in nearby Jersey City.

You can see how the wind definitely played a role in the intensity of the fire. Surprised no “fire alerts” were issued.

Explosion the cause or just an affect of the Madison St. fire?

Several residents heard a “loud explosion” prior to realizing a fire had broken out. While the fire was initially labeled as caused by cigarettes (according to one resident who lived in one of the buildings), other theories are that a propane tank could have been involved. But it’s uncertain if those explosions were just the result of the fire, and not the cause.

Resident Stephanie said “We heard a huge boom and then fire trucks rushed to the scene just seconds later.”

This is how it looked in her field of view:
