FF BREAKS ANKLE ON ROOF AT SMALL FIRE AT NJ MCDONALDS

     

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 A firefighter was injured while fighting a blaze at the McDonald’s Restaurant on Route 47 in Glassboro Monday evening.

Firefighters were called out at about 7:06 p.m.

The fire was declared under control at 7:34 p.m. and crews were in service until 8:02 p.m.

One firefighter reportedly suffered injuries from a fall, according to a transmission on emergency radio frequencies, and was transported to Kennedy University Hospital in Washington Township.

Fire Chief Ralph Johnson said it was a kitchen grease fire and that the business’ fire suppression system activated properly.

Police evacuated the restaurant as it filled with smoke, said Johnson.

Because the fire was centered on residual grease, firefighters couldn’t use water. Instead, Johnson said, they put the fire out with dry powder.

The injured firefighter had climbed to the roof to see if the fire had extended there, fell over a parapet and fell about five feet, said Johnson. The man broke a bone in his ankle, said the chief.

The Gloucester County Board of Health sent someone to inspect the restaurant Monday night and would determine Tuesday if it could reopen, Johnson said.
