Bayard Lane Fire in Princeton Started in Basement

Firefighters were at 56 Bayard Lane for more than two hours last night.

A fire broke out just before 11 p.m. Sunday night in the basement of 56 Bayard Lane.  When emergency responders arrived on the scene, they evacuated the building and the adjoining building, 6 Hodge Road. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, which was determined to have started after embers from a fire in the fireplace had dropped into an ash cleanout bin in the basement.
