During a week with many calls, most of which were false alarms and unfounded reports, the Livingston Fire Department had to contend with an attic fire and a lightning strike.

On Sunday, July 21, Livingston Police received a residential fire alarm from 24 Vanderbilt Drive and dispatched the Fire Department, which responded with a chief officer and an engine company. The homeowners were not home. Upon arrival, firefighters found a fire burning inside the home’s HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system on the second floor. The fire was quickly extinguished, limiting smoke and fire damage to a second floor room as well as the HVAC unit.
