Wilson Borough firefighter Mark Cooke, who was stopped Friday morning at the traffic
light in Phillipsburg’s Union Square, saw a car burning in the adjacent US gas
station. Cooke and firefighter Charlie Wacik rushed to help a woman out of the
car, according to Phillipsburg Fire Chief Rich Hay
Off-duty Wilson Borough
firefighters Mark Cooke and Charlie Wacik were waiting late this morning at the
traffic light on South Main Street in Phillipsburg
when they saw smoke coming from a car at the adjacent US Gas station.
Cooke initially thought it was just car exhaust. Instead it was a car fire
that, as it quickly grew, began to panic people at the station.
The friends pulled into the lot as smoke from the car — parked at a pump —
“I saw there’s a lady still in it,” Cooke said shortly
afterward, adding he was shocked. “I’m like, ‘We’ve got to get her out
The pair pulled the elderly woman out of the car unharmed but shook up, he
said. She was checked out by an emergency medical services crew.
“We got her out of the car just in time,” he
The first call on the fire came in at 11:16 a.m. Phillipsburg
fire Chief Rich Hay said the fire was caused by mechanical issues with the car.
The car fire was just smoky at first, but then the Wilson Borough firefighters
saw flames, Cooke said
Cooke said he and Wacik, who both live in Wilson, used chemical fire
extinguishers from the borough station and Cooke’s car to keep the fire under
control until Phillipsburg firefighters arrived. They also made sure the gas
pumps were turned off.
The off-duty firefighters had no protective gear in the car, but Cooke said
that didn’t matter.
“We just sprung into action and did our thing,” Cooke,
39. said. “It is what we’re trained to do. We don’t really think about
Cooke said the entire endeavor was just “standard
“We’re just glad to be able to make sure she was OK,” he
Phillipsburg police also
aided in keeping the fire from getting out of control, Cooke said.
Hay, the town fire chief, said he did not have the woman’s name to release.
Town police did not respond to calls for comment.
