A two-alarm fire was contained to a second-flood unit Saturday, July 29, in Building 11 of the Brookwood Gardens apartment complex in East Windsor.
The call came in at 4:13 p.m. and the first firefighting units on the scene were met with heavy flames.
“Firefighters did a great job holding the fire to the one apartment and preventing it from spreading to other units,” said James McCann, chief of East Windsor Volunteer Fire Company #1. “It was excellent teamwork by all the fire companies that responded.”
The fire was contained to the apartment or origin, which suffered heavy fire and water damage. The adjacent apartment and the apartment below the unit where the fire started both suffered water damage. There were no injuries reported.
Firefighters took approximately 25 minutes to get the blaze under control. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, East Windsor Fire Prevention Bureau and East Windsor Police Department.
Fire companies answering the call included East Windsor Volunteer Fire Company #1, East Windsor Volunteer Fire Company #2, Hightstown Engine Company, Cranbury Fire Company, West Windsor Volunteer Fire Company, Plainsboro Fire Company, Robbinsville Fire Department, Princeton Junction Volunteer Fire Company, Applegarth Fire Company, Millstone Fire Company and Decou Fire Company.
