The volunteer fire companies of Laureldale, Cologne and Mays Landing responded to Cedar Street in the Laureldale section of the township on March 22, for a structure fire with wires down and arcing, and the A, D and C sides well involved and through the roof of the two-story, wood frame, single-family dwelling that had just been renovated. The New Jersey Forest Fire Service arrived and began extinguishing a fire in the woodlands as the fire had extended. Firefighters poured water onto the fire for several hours before bringing it under control.
