JACKSON-A general alarm was dispatched this morning for a working structure fire that brought companies from Stations 55, 54, 56, 57 and Southard R.I.T. to a Jackson Township hope.
The fire began at the rear of a first floor porch and extended into the home. The inside of the home sustained moderate heat and smoke damage.
A hot tub on the first floor deck was completely destroyed by fire.
Jackson Fire Official Frank McDonnell and Ocean County Deputy Fire Marshal Brian Mount investigated the fire and ruled the fire accidental related to improper discarding of smoking material that ignited combustibles on the porch. There were no injuries.
