ONLY ON CVP: A Teaneck fire captain was being kept overnight at Hackensack University Medical Center after falling through the roof while fighting a stubborn blaze at a Hackensack house where a propane tank exploded during a barbecue.
Fifty firefighters from several companies responded to the three-alarm blaze, which, “from the looks of it, appears accidental,” a Hackensack fire official told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.
The Teaneck captain doesn’t appear to be seriously injured, another firefighter said.
“Last report was that he has a back injury and is being held overnight for observation,” he told CLIFFVIEW PILOT.
Two other people with minor injuries were treated.
