(October 11) At 9:04 am a passing motorist on Route 23 observed visible fire from Tony’s Pizza, a landmark restaurant in the Stockholm section of Hardyston Township, Sussex County for decades. Hardyston units arrived to a well involved fire which had already self vented. JTFD#1 was paged for mutual aid. Responding units from Jefferson were Engines 722 and 727, Tanker 723 and Chief 730 (Schmidt) in the Command Unit. Upon arrival, 722’s crew entered the rear of the building in conjunction with operations from Hardyston on the A side of the building, and Franklin on the B side of the building. The 722 team met fire in the attached apartment area on the D side of the building. Due to the large amount of fire in the ceiling area of the apartment JTFD#1 sent a roof team to vent a second hole in the rear of the apartment, which enabled the Hardyston team from the front of the building and the JTFD#1 engine crew from the rear to extinguish the remaining fire. Engine 727 assisted with water supply and 723 stood by to supply water to 722 and the Franklin engine. The building sustained major damage.
