Kitchen Fire Severely Damages Home

UPDATED: PHOTOS: Dozens of emergency personnel responded to a kitchen fire which began spreading to the ceiling of a 2-story home.

The Fire Department hit out for the General Alarm for the Evian Court fire, which started at about 7 PM.

The home’s occupants emerged safely, but the kitchen was pretty much “wiped out,” Assistant Chief Steve McNamara says.

The FAST Team from Brick was called in to assist as well.

The home also suffered severe smoke and water damage, McNamara says.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshal’s office.

  1. What does it matter the street address or what time it happened. A family or 2 families are without a home simply because of an accident while cooking.

  2. Thank you firefighter. I wanted to say the same but did want to start a argument.

    Why don’t you go over to that family and give him and his kids some cloths to wear for yom ttov. They will not have anything to wear from all the smoke. How about worrying where the are going to live now or where they are going to pend yom tov

    We are a commuty of chesed let’s do that instead of worrying what time did it happen what the street address is.

  3. @9:23&10:06…the reason I asked wheres the address was 2fold, the original title for the article was alarming enough to read and produced an immediate anxiety with me I was concerned for my elderly families well being and knowing the address was my first concern, 2nd is now knowing where the poor victoms are from everyone can now help in their time of need… fighter and other you r always to quick to spew your arrogance as if you r the chosen one of knowledge. Next time be alittle more conservative when responding to legitimate questions by others. You might find that the questions have valid concerns. smh

  4. #5 and 6. its a bit much to get the people clothes for yomtov if you dont know who are they. They didnt do anything wrong. Its ok for someone to ask.

  5. hahah station 66 guys need to wear shorts . they get hott being running all these calls and being first engines in! wait a sec , what two trucks are directly behind the paid trucks ???? all together now .. 66 we got this .. hahaha

    I am not arrogant it seems that everyone is so concerned about the residents. Well I am too but I am more concerned about life safety.
    I dont need to know every one of the 130,000 people in this town. I know the 60 Firefighters, several police officers and EMS people..MY Family. If my family and the residents are safe then it was a successful fire. But I will not respond on here anymore..
    thanks, see you at the next BIG ONE

  7. To # 11, It is really not OK how #1 and #3 worded their posts, while they may have legitimate concerns, they come across as incident followers who want to join the too many sidewalk galkers who seem to rush to any type of emergency situations we have in town. The emergency workers don’t need any more people potentially getting in the way. And many times the people in trouble don’t want the world knowing about it either. It would be more prudent to inquire if the people need, or want any help, and if so, who do I contact?.
    #8, firefighter may come across as arrogant, but look in the mirror and re read your post.
    And yes, #4 asking what time it started is a waste of space.
