At about 1320 on Sunday April 12 2009 the Bergenfield Fire Department was dispatched to 73 River Edge Road for a garage fire. Upon the arrivial of DC1, fire was showing from the garage area of the house. As first arriving companies entered the block, a propane tank exploded/BLEVEd sending a chunk of the tank skipping across the street and hitting a house. Members made a quick stop of the fire preventing it from spreading to the attached house. A New Milford FAST Team along with engines from Hackensack and Teaneck responded to the scene while an engine from Dumont and an Englewood ladder covered the town. Companies were off the scene by 1530. Video by Alex Kneisler.
