@ approximately 2:06 PM – Police responded to the Hunterdon Land Trust on Mine Street, near the Dvoor Circle, for a reported structure fire. Upon arrival, police saw smoke coming from the rear of a building on the property. Police were initially told there was no one inside the building; however P.O. Christopher Vallat heard a female screaming for help from a partially opened second floor window. P.O. Vallat located a metal extension ladder on the property and used it to climb up to the window. There he encountered Mary Licetti, a Hunterdon Land Trust employee, in the smoke filled room. Licetti was unable to exit the window and climb down the ladder due to a previous injury unrelated to the fire. Sgt. Ben Donaruma breached the front door of the building and he and P.O. Vallat entered the smoke filled structure.

The officers located Licetti on the second floor and assisted her out of the building and into the care of the Flemington-Raritan First Aid and Rescue Squad. She was ultimately transported to Hunterdon Medical Center where she was treated for smoke inhalation. The Raritan Township Fire Company responded and extinguished the fire with assistance from the Quakertown Fire Company. Detectives from the Raritan Township Police Department and the Fire Marshall and Inspectors from the Raritan Township Fire Official’s Office responded to investigate. The fire originated on the first floor at the rear of the building. The source of the fire does not appear to be suspicious and the incident is still under investigation by the Fire Official’s Office. No other injuries were reported.
