Video from thelakewoodscoop taken at a fire Tuesday afteroon in the El Oxacaqueno Restaurant at 124 Clifton Avenue in Lakewood, New Jersey.
“The fire was stubborn because the roof collapsed,” (Chief Todd) Stark said. Fortunately, two women were rescued prior to the collapse.
Ocean County Fire Marshals John Pasola and Michael Marks were in the downtown when they saw heavy black smoke coming from the Spanish restaurant, Stark said. They called for the fire companies and evacuated the building. There was an apartment above the restaurant and the fire marshals went upstairs and rescued the two women, who lived in an apartment above the restaurant, Stark said.
The El Oxacaqueno was heavily damaged from the fire and businesses on either side suffered smoke and water damage. Those businesses will likely be open in a few days, Stark said.
