Apartment Fire at Westgate Gardens

PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany Police Department Communications Center received multiple 911 calls reporting a fire inside an apartment at 8:49 a.m. on Thursday, December 28.

The apartment was located at 350  Parsippany Road in the Westgate Gardens.

Parsippany-Troy Hills Police officers, along with the Parsippany-Troy Hills Volunteer Fire Department District 6, Lake Parsippany Volunteer Fire Department District 3, Mount Tabor Volunteer Fire Department RIC District 1, Par-Troy EMS, and Rockaway Neck First Aid Squad responded to the scene.

Surrounding buildings and apartments were temporarily evacuated. The firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and the evacuated occupants were allowed back inside their residences. The occupants of the apartment that was on fire arrived on scene and spoke to Parsippany Police Department Fire Investigator Patrolman David Cavaliere.

After a brief investigation it was determined that the cause of the fire was from a candle that was left unattended after the occupants left. The apartment that was on fire was left uninhabitable and the occupants are making their own temporary living arrangements.

No injuries were reported and the responding emergency personnel cleared the scene by 9:47 a.m.
