Employees tried unsuccessfully to put the fire out before the MFD knocked down the blaze, officials said
The Mahwah Fire Department quickly extinguished a fire Monday morning that officials said could have easily spread from a forklift inside the Mahwah Home Depot's Garden Center to the many Christmas trees and firewood displays surrounding it, Mahwah Assistant Fire Chief Brad Stio said.
