Upon their arrival, the crew of Engine 117 was tasked with stretching a second handline to the second floor of the residence and meeting up with the initial attack crew from Upper Saddle River. While on the second floor, Co 1 firefighters made good use of their handline and knocked down the bulk of the fire spreading through second floor bedrooms and attic. Despite the fire being well-developed before any fire department units arrived, the quick aggressive action of all firefighters on scene prevented fire damage from the majority of the 4200 square foot residence. Co 1 firefighters operated on scene for roughly 3 hours before being released.
