UPDATE: Lodi firefighters doused a three-alarm garden apartment fire this afternoon apparently sparked by a power strip connected to an air conditioner.

“The first floor unit was severely damaged by fire and the second by some fire and a lot of smoke,” Lodi Fire Chief Ron Cannici told CLIFFVIEW PILOT after the 3:34 p.m. call.

Despite trouble with a hydrant directly in front of the building, firefighters had the fire knocked down in less than a half-hour, Canicci said.

Hackensack, Maywood and Wallington firefighters joined their Lodi colleagues.

Residents of both apartments will have to be temporarily relocated, officials said.
