Ho Ho Kus NJ, A smokey fire that began in a bathroom forced the complete evacuation of the Ho-Ho-Kus Public School on Tuesday afternoon, 05/29. Ho-Ho-Kus Police officers used hand held extinguishers and contained the fire prior to the arrival of Ho-Ho-Kus Fire Department and Waldwick Fire Department firefighters. Due to high heat conditions, two (2) ambulances were dispatched to the scene as firefighters worked to ventilate the structure. No injuries were reported in the incident and some students were observed re-entering the building within 30 minutes of the fire alarms sounding. The fire’s cause remains under investigation.
