Area July 15, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • Page 11 House fire doused Wyckoff Township Committeemen David Connolly and his wife Mary were heroes to the five neighborhood kids they sheltered at their home during a fire in the early morning hours of July 4, but Connolly said the real heroes were the firefighters who saved the house from total destruction with a prompt and efficient response. “It was absolutely great to see the organization, and the flow and the professionalism,” Connolly said at last week’s Wyckoff Township Committee work session. “These people knew exactly what they had to do. To have volunteers that well trained is outstanding.” Connolly, active in Scouting and environmental projects, minimized his own role and even that of his wife in comforting the five frightened children who saw their house filled with smoke and flames. The fire started at 1:30 a.m. and caused minor fire damage and serious smoke damage on the lower floor. Inspectors said the fire appeared to have started in an outmoded appliance and was not suspicious. J.
