Five-Alarm Fire Burns Three Jersey City (NJ) Homes

Firefighters in Jersey City, New Jersey, were kept busy earlier this week with a number of serious fires, including a fire that went to five alarms and burned three homes.

ABC 7 reported that crews experienced water supply issues at the scene of Tuesday’s fire on Wegman Parkway.

The fire displaced 21 people and three dogs. One firefighter was hospitalized with second-degree burns to the back of his neck.
