Losing the Past

There was a major fire in town yesterday. One of our historic buildings - and Clinton is chock full of them - caught fire early Sunday morning and burned all day. Units from 5 fire companies fought the thing, draining the South Branch of the Raritan River (which is just yards away) to do the job. Alas today, there isn’t much left except burnt beams and roasted bricks. The building was historically young, at a mere 125, but it was very rich in history, having been used as everything from a vaudeville music hall to a car dealership over the years, and currently housing a couple medical offices, a hair salon, a couture shop and several other small office businesses. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries.

Fire caused extensive damage Sunday to a historic music hall building in a riverfront town in New Jersey.

Firefighters arrived at about 9 a.m. at the building in Clinton to find flames tearing through the upper floors.

The Clinton Music Hall building, now known as Clinton Center, was once a 300-seat venue for music, theater and film. Today, it’s home to several small businesses.

The blaze caused the third floor of the structure to collapse, fire officials said.

A multi-alarm fire burned the former Clinton Music Hall on Sunday morning.

The fire broke out around 8:30 a.m. in the four-story building on Main Street. The building had a 300-seat theater in the rear and offices on the lower floors. Firefighters were bringing in water from the water treatment plant to douse the flames according to the Hampton FIre Co. Station 13 Facebook page.

The NJ Advanced Media news website reported that a collapse of the third floor forced the evacuation of the building. Pictures of the building show a large section of the roof missing.

New Jersey Fast Traffic said that the fire forced the closure of exit #15 off Route 78 for Route 173 in Clinton.

A spokesman for the Clinton Town Police Department could not be reached for comment. A service that monitors police radio frequencies said most of the mutual aid trucks were sent home by 3:49 p.m. Sunday. Kania said the last fire trucks were there until nearly 6 p.m.

CLINTON TOWN - A touch of nostalgia wasn’t the only element lost in Sunday’s fire that destroyed the historic Clinton Music Hall on West Main Street.

Splitenz Salon Studio, Hunterdon Pilates, the dental offices of Dr. Hal Bergeron and an attorney’s office were destroyed in the four-alarm blaze at the building that once housed some of the premier entertainment acts in the country before the turn of the 19th century.

I don’t understand the hose layout here. The two black lines are suction, one feeding the truck directly and the other feeding the gas powered pump.
So the one white line on the right is also a feeder to the truck. What does the middle white one do? It can’t be attached to the pump. And why are they squirting water back if they need desperately to fill up?
I’d know this stuff if I was a fireman, but I’m not. I can’t even understand why they had to drive the tanker trucks back and forth, since the river was only about 100 yards from the blaze. Don’t they have that much hose?
Whatever. Thanks for helping out guys, and for keeping the rest of the street, including the lumber yard next door, from going up as well.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
