Big fire at 227-229 Main St
« on: May 16, 2020, 08:21:13 PM »
These two businesses - NJ Modern Kitchen & Bath and Mix & Match Fashion - are right next to the Hackensack Riverkeeper building at 231 Main (see pic). Firemen were in 231 Main, but I don't know what damage - if any - the Riverkeeper suffered.

I have a ton of photos to get through - hopefully by tomorrow - but if anyone else was there and took pictures, please post them.

The video - bits and pieces stuck together:




The pix:

1. I first saw the smoke from my apartment and quickly headed over there - so quickly, I forgot my mask. As you may have noticed in the video, social distancing was not an option.

2. The view from State St between Berry and Camden

3. The view from Camden

4. The view from Main and Camden

5. The view from Main and Salem, where people were blocked off

6. The view from Main, across from the Riverkeeper's building

7. The upper corner of the Fashion shop

8. The view I stuck with

9-11. On the ladder

12. Ghostly firefighters and a water stream from the ladder

13. There were a lot of firemen inside the Riverkeeper's building. I hope they were able to limit the damage.

14,15. The fire in that upper corner of the Fashion shop gets blasted.

16. Kitchen & Bath gets a bath.

17,18. The view from Main St - time to head home.

19. The view of Salem from State St

20.  In front of Christ Church on State
