Friday 2/7/2020 TRFD Incident 2020-0170   71 15th Street - Fatal House Fire.

Not all days can be good days. We were dispatched to a late night fire and despite all of our best efforts one young mother didn't make it out. At this time there is to many supporting agencies to list but our members thank you for having our backs during and after this incident. The phone calls, texts and messages are all well appreciated. Our Dispatchers, TRPD, Silverton EMS, Toms RIVER CSO and our Ladies Auxiliary worked hard in a cold windy night with the help of many others. We battled flames and extreme weather conditions in a courageous and valiant effort. This is a tragic day for the Silverton Fire Company and the Silverton section of Toms River Township.
.
Our hearts are heavy this evening for this loss and we can't begin to imagine how devastated this family is.
