Mahwah NJ, This morning around 4am Mahwah Fire, Police, and EMS were dispatched to a home who’s residents awoke to smoke in the house. First arriving units confirmed thick black smoke coming from the home. Thankfully all residents were able to exit the home on their own with the assistance of Mahwah Police and fire units quickly began locating and extinguishing the blaze. Unfortunately the deep seated fire in the basement ravaged the home and made its way throughout almost every room and into the attic. All 5 Mahwah fire companies worked together to extinguish bulk of the fire, subsequent hot spots and the fire was placed under control around 7am.
