A blaze broke out Tuesday afternoon at the Dunellen Defender Fire Company No. 1, officials said. A post from the company did not provide specifics on what was damaged but photos from the scene showed that at least two fire trucks were damaged as well as the front of the firehouse. “We are still assessing the damage and the cause is being investigated by the Middlesex County Fire Marshal’s Office,” the post stated. “There were no reported injuries and we are still assessing the damage.” A spokesman for the office could not immediately be reached for comment. The company thanked the local departments that responded to the fire and said it would be working with them so they could help provide mutual aid until their apparatuses could be restored to “full service.”
