RED BANK, NJ: A fire originating from the second story of a house was reported early Friday morning which forced a family to flee.

The house is located on the corner of Drs. James Parker Blvd. and Central Ave., an industrial area where the businesses of Central Towing and Recovery, Angelo’s Paving, Globe Petroleum and the NJ Transit Red Bank Yard are located.

“The fire department responded to a call at 3:27am of a structure fire coming from the second-floor window.  Firefighters stretched 1 ¾ attack lines which established water supply and extinguished the fire.  Firefighters checked for any extension (of the fire).  The family was placed in an ambulance to stay warm until a suitable place was found to stay,” said F. Scott Calabrese, Fire Chief.
