High Winds Spread Construction Site Fire In New Jersey To Multiple Properties

 Monday, January 13, 2020


A massive fire ripped through several buildings, including a pair of apartment complexes under construction in downtown Bound Brook Sunday night, according to fire officials.

Firefighters, who continued to battle the blaze past 11 p.m., said there were no serious injuries. A Bound Brook firefighter was treated for a sprained ankle.

The fire broke out on East Main Street near Mountain Avenue shortly before 8 p.m. Photos and video showed roaring flames spreading to both sides of the street and consuming a building in the borough’s downtown commercial district.

In addition to the construction sites, Bound Brook Police Chief Vito Bet said the fire spread to two houses and an electronics store, as well.

“The whole thing caught flame quickly," Bet said. The fire "was so hot it blew to the other new building under construction across the street. We’re gonna be out here for awhile. It keeps rekindling.“
