Dozens Displaced in Nine-Alarm NJ Apartment Fire

Up to 200 firefighters responded to an early-morning apartment fire in Woodbridge, New Jersey, that left dozens of people homeless.

A NJ.com report (http://bit.ly/NhuKHd) quotes Avenel fire official Cory Spillar, one of the first firefighters on the scene after the fire was reported at the Woodbridge Village apartment complex at 3:08 p.m., who said the flames spread up to a common cockloft. The fire rose through building 36 on the site and extended to the adjacent building 37.

Nine Woodbridge fire units responded, aided by firefighters from Sayreville, South Plainfield and Metuchen. Crews from Edison, Piscataway, and North Plainfield provided backup.

No injuries were reported in the fire and Woodbridge officials spent hours Tuesday night before they could determine that all of the tenants had escaped the burning building.
