The Maywood Fire Department responded for reports of a house fire on Spring Valley Road. On arrival, Chief John Gargagliano reported fire in the attic space of the 1-1/2 story Cape Cod. Mutual aid was requested from Rochelle Park and Hackensack to the scene. Two lines were stretched and put into operation as the truck went to the roof to open up. The main body of fire was knocked down in 20 minutes and the fire was placed under control shortly after. No injuries were reported and the fire appeared to have been electrical in nature.
