NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - At about 11:15pm Wednesday evening, the North Caldwell Police and Fire Department reported to the area near 515 Mountain Avenue where a live wire was on fire. The wire was laying on the side of the road, near to the front lawn of the home. As is always the case, the officers allowed it to burn out so that Public Service could attend to the electrical aspect of the fire.
Mountain Avenue was closed down in that vicinity and detoured at East Greenbrook Avenue; Cedar Grove Police assisted with traffic control.
PSEG arrived at 11:45pm.
The fire was completely out by 12:48am.
