HFD Makes Quick Work of Dumpster Fire w/ Exposures
By Hillsdale Fire Department
March 6, 2023

Today at 10:56am, the HFD was alerted of a possible house fire. Engine 3 arrived on scene confirming a dumpster fire with close proximity to a residence and 2 travel trailers. The fire was extinguished with no extension to the adjacent house or trailers with the assistance of @wlfd_nj and @rivervalefire . It was determined that there may be lithium ion batteries in the dumpster which brought a response from Bergen County Hazmat. With the assistance of the Westwood and Hillsdale DPW’s, we were able to empty the dumpster on borough property, and determine there was no longer a hazard. We want to remind everyone to be careful when storing and discarding lithium ion batteries #firefighter #hillsdale #bergencounty #trainyourprobie #firetruck #firerescue #station27
