Fire Rips Through Lackawanna Trail Home

No injuries in residential blaze that occurred early Wednesday morning.

A fire is under investigation that tore through an unoccupied Lackawanna Trail home early Wednesday morning, Fire Chief Wade Crowley said.

Crowley said the borough's fire department, police department and detectives bureau all responded to an initial call at around 5:40 a.m. The fire had been burning for a while before they got there, he said.

He said the firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze by 7 a.m., and stayed at the scene clearing debris until about 8:30 a.m.

Crowley said the homeowners were not at the residence at the time of the fire and no one sustained any injuries.

One of the homeowners was staying down the street from his Lackwanna Trail home, but came to the scene Crowley said.

Crowley said the homeowner was taken to the hospital shortly after, but for an unrelated issue.

In addition to Hopatcong, six other fire departments responded including Mt. Arlington, Roxbury, Netcong, Stanhope, Byram and Andover Township, according to Crowley.

Crowley said the police department is currently investigating the cause of the fire.

Ck1, how is this the mayors fault? Really? Have you seen the devastation around the state? How about this, stop blaming ppl for things out Of thier control. There are many other towns still without power and it doesn't look as though they will be getting it back anytime soon either.

Stack don’t get upset at people who are ignorant (Ck1) when they have nothing good to say all they know how to do is blame others, or look to point the finger at others. It’s people like him that have turned this world into what it is today.
