Crews were able to put out the blaze using Waretown Tanker 3641 and Barnegat Tanker 1101, as the Parkway and western part of Waretown do not have fire hydrants.

Station 60, Station 11, the Ocean County Fire Marshals Office, NJ Fire Marshals Office, New Jersey State Police, and Waretown First Aid assisted.
