ROSELLE, NJ - The Roselle Fire dept. along with mutual aid from many surrounding towns responded to a fire that broke out in an apartment building on the 700 Block of East 3rd.Ave. in Roselle Saturday morning. 

The fire broke out around at approximately 6:49 a.m. and quickly engulfed the building. According to Roselle Fire Chief Paul Mucha, the fire started as a stove fire that quickly spread on the right side of the building and then eventually engulfed the whole building. 

“We got everyone out and there were no injuries to the residents or any of our firemen,” said Mucha. “A lot of the residents were disabled but they are all safely evacuated.”

First Ward Councilwoman Denise Wilkerson was also at the scene along with representatives from Community Access Unlimited and the Red Cross assisting with the displaced families who were eventually transported to another location for housing. 

As of 10 a.m., firemen were still at the scene and still had lines drawn. Fire Departments from Roselle Park, Elizabeth, Union, Kenilworth, Linden and other surrounding towns were either at the scene or on standby for Roselle Fire. 

Town officials and Roselle’s Office of Emergency Management (O.E.M.) were meeting at Borough Hall to help with the placement of the residents.

We will update the story as needed and more information becomes available.
