Fire Strikes Edgewater, New Jersey
Apartment Complex Again
"It's deja vu all over again" - Yogi Berra
January 21, 2015
August 30, 2000 - First Fire
"The fire had jumped across a street from its origin in a 400 unit townhouse complex under construction and blew out the windows of a 24-unit garden apartment, demolished nine private homes, destroyed utility lines and poles, and incinerated numerous cars. A fire engine from Edgewater that was among the first to arrive was caught in the heat as the fire leaped over what should have been a natural firebreak."
". . . as an American Red Cross volunteer at the victim reception center temporarily set up at the Edgewater recreation building, I provided mental health disaster services for some of the 67 people who had lost their homes. . . . there were quirks of fate [that] intensified the trauma and loss . . . one of the homeowners had just completed an extensive home renovation. Another had just finished restoring a classic car. Like lightning striking a place twice, a woman tearfully described how a short in a power transformer two years before had caused a blowout of all the appliances in her apartment just as this fire had once again damaged all of her appliances by causing an electrical surge in the circuitry of her apartment building. Nevertheless, there was also good fortune. It was life-sparing that this fire broke out in the early evening instead of later when these families would have been asleep."
