On Sunday, August 6, 2017 South Wall was requested into Manasquan for a working structure fire at Mueller’s Florist. The rescue arrived and immediately went to work to assist Manasquan and Sea Girt FD with an aggressive interior attack. Our thoughts go out to the Mueller’s Business as this was a long standing Jersey Shore Business. For more pictures and video check out our Facebook page
