Early this morning the City of Lambertville Fire District #1 was dispatched for the reported brush fire in the roadway.
While Rescue Engine 17s crew was extinguishing the small brush fire ignited by a blown transformer, members noticed a nearby shed was on fire and smoke was showing form an adjacent out building which houses 4 bedrooms.
The call was upgraded requesting Quint 26 and Chief 26.
Chief 26 (Ent) arrived and assumed command while Quint 26 (LT Buck) laddered the 1 story and began opening up the roof. While units were arriving, smoke was seen by the 3rd floor soffits of Little Haven Rest Home.( all on the same property)After evacuating multiple tenants and the building checked thoroughly it was deemed to be smoke from the shed /out building fire.

WAFCO units were cleared around 3am.
