An unresponsive pigeon redbankgreen found standing on Shrewsbury Avenue opposite the G&G Hot Dog truck in Red Bank Thursday afternoon is now getting some TLC. Borough animal control officer Henry Perez picked up the bird and transported it to the Humane Society in Tinton Falls, where he says the animal will get care while officials try to track down the owner using the ID bands on its legs.

Two Tinton Falls volunteer firefighters were treated for injuries sustained during a noontime fire in Tinton Falls on Thursday, according to a fire official.
Tinton Falls Engine Company #1 Chief Mark Park told redbankgreen that both firefighters were taken to nearby hospitals one for an unspecified leg injury and the other for heat exhaustion suffered in fighting the blaze, at 85 Reeds Road.
Neither’s injuries were serious, he said, and no one was in the house at the time of the fire, reported at 12:01 p.m.
