On January 5, 2006, at 10 a.m., the Tinton Falls Fire Company, under the command of Wayside Fire Company's Chief Bob Preckajlo, were dispatched for a report of a working RV fire on the Garden State Parkway, at the Tinton Falls Toll Plaza.

The RV, which is registered to the US Army, was fully involved.

Tinton Falls responded with three engines and crews from Wayside and Pinebrook Fire Companies.
The Pinebrook Company, under Chief Bob Phillips, provided water to fight the fire.

There were no injuries to any firefighters or civilians.
