Pattern of Nutley House Fires

Tragically, on October 10, 2020 a massive house fire broke out in Nutley causing a death of a 74-year-old man, Joseph Collar. The fire, on Myrtle Ave., killed one while two members of the household were sent to the hospital and taken into immediate care. A bystander, who watched the fire go down, says he “heard a male voice calling help me.” Montclair, Bloomfield and Lyndhurst fire fighters were also on the scene due to the severity of the fire although Nutley was the first to respond.
