Two-Alarm Fire Destroys House in Edison

Edison Fire officials are looking into the cause of a fire that destroyed a house in the township early Wednesday morning.

According to preliminary reports, flames tore through a house located at 55 Walker Avenue at approximately 3:10 a.m.

Officials say crews arrived and found a fully involved fire that engulfed a single-family two-story house with possible trapped occupants.

Firefighters stretched multiple lines and began an exterior attack of the blaze in an effort to control the fire enough to get firefighters inside the structure.

Crews were able to make their way inside the home where they checked for victims which came back negative.

Officials said the house was under construction.

The cause of the fire has not been confirmed at this time.
