Hawthorne NJ, one (1) firefighter sustained a minor injury while helping to extinguish a two-alarm structure fire in the 200 block of Lafayette Avenue, Hawthorne on Monday morning, 01/17. Although a dog and a cage full of tropical birds were successfully rescued from the burning structure, several chickens perished in the blaze. An aggressive interior attack by Hawthorne firefighters confined the blaze to the home’s breezeway and attached garage. Hawthorne Police Department and Hawthorne EMS also responded to the incident.
