Piscataway Fires

A brush fire that appears to have started at a farm on Gallahan Road spread quickly driven by high winds. The fire damaged as many as 20 structures that include homes (some abandoned), sheds and barns. This incident escalated quickly to a third alarm with about 30 pieces of fire apparatus on location with about 120 firefighters working to extinguish the fires.

Damage to occupied homes are minor to moderate. No civilian or firefighter injuries have been reported.

Command post is set up at Piscataway Road and Windbrook Drive.

Firefighters from Arlington and Alexandria Virginia assisted on this incident.

Firefighters continue to operate on the scene and will remain here for an extended period of time.
