Photos from Berkeley Heights Fire Department’s post






At 1:59 am on Saturday morning a New Providence Police officer notified Berkeley Heights Police that a gasoline tanker was on fire on Diamond Hill Rd, between Interstate 78 and Ghost Pony Rd. Chief Padovano arrived 6 minutes later and found the tires on the tractor were burning and flames were impinging on the tank. The tanker was fully loaded with over eight thousand gallons of gasoline. There is approximately twenty five homes downhill of the fire, although the potential danger was great, damage was confined to the tanker. A first alarm assignment was dispatched to the scene as a precaution, which included an Engine from New Providence, Summit, Stirling and a Ladder from Chatham Twp. The Berkeley Heights Rescue Squad was also on scene with two ambulances. After the fire was extinguished most of the gasoline was transferred to another tanker so the damaged tractor and tanker could be safely towed. Diamond Hill Rd was closed until about 11am. Other agencies that assisted were the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Union County Haz Mat, New Jersey State Police and Department of Transportation. Plainfield, Fanwood and Scotch Plains Fire Dept’s covered the Township at Fire Headquarters.

Since Wednesday, we have responded to approximately 47 incidents, mostly related to the recent storm. These incidents include multiple utility issues, trees on structures, and carbon monoxide emergencies.

As a reminder to remain safe as we continue to ride out the effects of the storm:

Do not attempt to go near/remove any down utility lines.

Place all portable generators outdoors, away from any structure. Make sure exhaust has ample area to ventilate into the outside air, not back into your home.

Use portable generators within the manufacturers instructions and do not attempt to connect a generator into your home’s wiring unless it has been wired to do so by an electrician. This can pose a significant risk to you, your home and utility workers as they begin to attempt repairs.

Do not leave any candles in your home unattended.

Please clear fire hydrants as best as you are able to do so and as long as the area around the hydrant is free of hazards.

Stay safe!

The borough has set up a shelter and warming station at the municipal center gym (please use Academy St. entrance). If you need transportation to the shelter, please call the borough non-emergency number at (908) 665-1111.

Please do not travel unless you absolutely need to do so. Many roads are still impassable.

Please be safe while digging out. Do not approach or attempt to move any down wires. Check on neighbors, especially the elderly.

Above all else, be patient and allow essential personnel to do what they need to do in order to get the area up and running.
