Hoarding Blamed for Fatal House Fire in Millburn

Fire officials in Essex County are blaming a fire that killed one person in Millburn on a terrible case of hoarding.

According to the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, one person was fatally injured after a house on Norwood Terrace went up in flames.
