On November 5, 2023, the Wyckoff Fire Department was dispatched to Meer Avenue for a house fire. On arrival companies encountered heavy fire in the rear of the two-story frame dwelling with entrapment. A second alarm was requested. The lone female occupant was quickly located and removed from the building in cardiac arrest and was transported to the hospital. As conditions deteriorated, command transmitted a third alarm and briefly pulled all members out of the building. After a quick transitional attack crews re-entered the building and quickly knocked down the main body of fire. The fire was placed under control in just over an hour, sadly the occupant passed away at the hospital due to her injuries. The fire is under investigation by the Bergen County Arson Squad, Wyckoff Fire Prevention and Police Dept.
