Bayonne Firefighters Extinguish 4-Alarm Building Fire


Firefighters in Bayonne battled a late-night fire that destroyed apartments inside a building in the city Tuesday night. 

A preliminary investigation revealed that firefighters were dispatched to 326 Broadway to investigate reports of a building fire with possible trapped residents. 

Upon arrival, crews immediately encountered heavy flames coming from the roof of a three-story multi-family building with at least one person trapped on the third floor. 

Crews stretched multiple lines and began to extinguish heavy fire in the rear of the structure. 

According to reports, firefighters rescued one person from a third-floor window who suffered no serious injuries. 

It took crews about two hours to bring the blaze under control that reached four alarms. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
