Firefighters were able to contain a first-floor fire at a two-story, wood-frame condominium in Jackson early Saturday afternoon.
The fire occurred at 404 Owls Nest Court in the 60 Acres community at 2:06 p.m. Two homeowners, whose names were not released, were in the laundry room when the fire broke out, but immediately were able to escape, Jackson Station 55 Fire Chief Michael R. Waters said. There were no injuries reported.
The condominium suffered moderate fire damage and significant smoke damage, and the homeowners will not be able to occupy the residence. The fire is under investigation by the Ocean County Fire Marshall’s office.
Fire companies responding included Jackson Station 55, Jackson Mills Station 54 and Whitesville Fire Company Station 57, with Southard Fire Department providing coverage for the Jackson stations.
“The initial arriving fire crew did an outstanding job knocking down the fire very quickly,” Waters said. “Because of the aggressive knockdown of the fire, it was prevented from spreading to the second floor.”
