Injuries Reported in Perth Amboy Building Fire

Perth Amboy

Perth Amboy fire officials are looking into the cause of a fire that sent several individuals to the hospital Monday. 

The early morning fire broke out in a mixed-used building located at 983 State Street around 2:55 a.m. 

Firefighters arrived at the scene and found the seat of the fire on the second floor of a building that had a liquor store on the bottom floor.

Police say firefighters made fast work of the small blaze, but about three victims were transported to the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital suffering smoke inhalation and minor injuries after jumping from the second floor. 

The fire was brought under control in under a half-hour.
