Fire Call At The Richfield


Share post:

The readers of are often our best reporters: Especially at 4 in the morning when the editors are sound asleep.

Natasha Hiden-Burns was awakened by the sound of the Verona Fire Department and police early today when they responded to a call at the Richfield Regency across from her apartment. She then did what any good reporter does in the 21st century: Snapped a photo on her phone and sent it to us. “The firefighters climbed up a latter onto the roof and were walking around the building with flashlights,” reported Hiden-Burns, co-owner of the dog training business Dog’s Best Friend.

Luckily, the call at the Richfield turned out to be nothing. But if you see an emergency, call 911, and then take a picture for us.
