The Fifth Street Fire in Perth Amboy is listed under Edison in the Home News Tribune so is the firing of half the staff responsible for the wrong information?

Where is the Perth Amboy Fire Chief? Why is the Edison Fire Chief telling the story?

If you can't write or print the story correctly either hire people that can or go out of business.

The Fifth Street Fire was in Edison, not Perth Amboy. That is why the Edison fire chief told the story. Fifth Street in Edison runs right into the old Clara Barton Elementary School, it's now an assisted living facilty.

I agree with you that if a newspaper is printing a story, at the very least they should make sure their facts are correct.
