  • Residential Structure Fire – On Friday, November 25, 2016, at 12:09 a.m., Officers Christopher Meyler, Anthony Sarno, and Julie Barcalow responded to the 1800 block of Serpentine Drive in Forked River, after receiving a call from a security company advising of a smoke alarm activation at the residence. The alarm notification was followed by a second call from a neighbor reporting heavy smoke coming from the residence. Upon Officer Meyler’s arrival, he observed a large concentration of flames coming from the rear of the ranch-style home. Officer Meyler located two adult female occupants (visitors from Massachusetts), who advised that they were able to exit from the fire, however, the 81-year-old female homeowner was still inside. Officer Meyler soon discovered the woman was trapped inside the attached garage. Officer Meyler broke an exterior garage window and entered inside in an attempt to reach the homeowner.  Officers Julie Barcalow, Anthony Sarno, and Scott Keefe arrived on scene to assist.  Officer Sarno entered the garage, along with two Forked River Volunteer Firemen, Rob Anderson and Ed Barker, Jr.   The four of them were able to successfully transfer the woman homeowner outside through the garage window.  The homeowner, and the two female visitors from Massachusetts, ages 64 and 35, were transported to Community Medical Center for smoke inhalation.  Officers Meyler and Sarno were also taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and minor injuries. The initial investigation revealed that the fire might have begun on the home’s exterior and spread inside without the knowledge of the occupants. The three women appeared to flee to the garage but were unable to open the garage doors due to the loss of power.  The two visitors escaped from a window located toward the front of the residence, however, they were separated from the homeowner in the heavy smoke. Fire departments from Forked River, Lanoka Harbor, Bayville, Waretown, and Stafford Township responded to the fire.
