ROXBURY, NJ - Motorists should avoid the Netcong area this morning as firefighters from across the region, including Roxbury, are battling a major fire there.

According to emergency radio transmissions, the fire is at a 3-story building on Main Street, occupied by a laundromat and dry cleaning business. There were reports of a collapse and firefighters, having problems getting water from hydrants, running lines to Lake Musconetcong.

Several times during the morning the responding fire companies were forced to broadcast personal accountability reports (PAR) informing the dispatch center that their firefighters were not trapped in the building or otherwise missing.
