Three-Alarm Fire Destroys Teaneck House


Firefighters in Bergen County battled a raging multi-alarm fire that gutted a house in the Teaneck on Thursday morning. 

Officials say heavy fire ripped through a two-and-a-half-story house located at 1161 Arlington Avenue around 3:20 a.m. 

When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found flames tearing through the second floor's windows and extending to the rear.

Fire officials at the scene struck a second, then a third alarm for manpower as intense flames appeared to extend to a neighboring house. 

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office was notified and responded to the scene.

As of 3:45 a.m., there were no severe injuries reported.
