Cause of night-time fire uncertain.
Warren volunteer firefighters and Rescue Squad members responded to an attic fire in a house on Marian Lane shortly after 10 p.m., Monday. No injuries were reported following the fire. The fire was put out by firefighters before it spread in the house. Residents first reported smoke in the house. The cause of the fire hasn't been determined yet, but since the neighborhood is without electricity because of damage from Hurricane Sandy, a possible chimney leak is being studied.

The ice cream truck of the '50s was a bit different than the rumbling wagons cruising neighborhood streets today—from the chrome bumpers to the polish on the saleman's shoes, they were impressive sights. At least, they were in the neighborhood Tommy Marazzo's parents grew up in—and since Marazzo's father and grandfather were the ice cream salesmen, the family has kept their vintage ice cream setup intact. It's one of the special exhibits visitors to Warren Township Volunteer Fire Department's seventh annual car show will enjoy, Sept. 9. The show, one of the largest in New Jersey, draws as many as 400 vehicles, including sports cars, race cars, cars painted British racing green and Cadillac coral pink. Luxury cars from the '50s and '60s …
