PISCATAWAY, NJ – A mid-afternoon house fire on Wednesday temporarily closed Lakeview Ave. in Piscataway between New Brunswick Ave and Washington Ave.

Fire crews from the New Market Fire Company and South Plainfield Fire Department initially responded, battling the blaze from the outside of the two-story home.

A second alarm later brought in a ladder truck from the North Stelton Fire Company whose crews assisted with putting out the remaining fire inside of the residence.
