A man from Middletown was arrested and charged with arson after an investigation by the Middletown Township Police and Fire Departments.
30 year-old Thomas A Farzan of Middletown was charged with third-degree Arson and fourth-degree Resisting Arrest after a fire on a house located at 161 Cherry Tree Lane 5:42 p.m. March 4.
Middletown Township Police and Fire Departments rushed to the location and found smoke billowing from the home. Upon entering the premises, officials found a male standing near the back door of the house. Farzan then attempted to flee police when they tried to question him.
Investigation revealed that Farzan was staying at the house recently, and that the house was owned by Farzan’s family, where his mother also resides. Investigation also discovered that the fire started in the living room of the home and was incendiary.
One firefighter was injured but was treated at the scene and is expected to be okay.
We’re glad no one was seriously hurt in this blaze. We hope the firefighter injured in this blaze is able to recover from their injuries quickly.
There are jobs that can expose a worker to danger. Firefighters for example, are prone to getting injured on the job. Some jobs may also expose workers to certain dangerous chemicals. These conditions may cause an illness to develop, which can hinder workers from getting income.
If a worker is injured or develops a chronic illness while doing their duties on the job, a request for medical treatment should be made to the employer as soon as possible. Under the NJ workers’ compensation law, the employer and/or their insurance carrier can select the physician(s) to treat injured workers for work related injuries. After that, a worker may file a workers’ compensation claim in order to deal with any medical bills and compensation for any income they may lose while sick or injured. A workers’ compensation claim must be filed as early as possible. Any delay in filing the claim may give doubts to the validity of the claim, which may increase the possibility that the claim is denied.
Once a claim is processed, an injured employee will receive benefits regardless of who was at fault. In exchange for these benefits, the worker cannot bring a civil action against the employer.
