By rlsmetro on

Two  brothers suffered fatal injuries in a house fire that erupted in Trenton Saturday evening.

Mayor W. Reed Gusciora said the three-alarm fire at 834 Carteret Ave. just before 7 p.m.

Firefighters responded to the scene and found flames engulfing the building. Fire officials struck a second, then third alarm for manpower after fire began to extend to neighboring homes. 

Officials say the victims were 20-year-old twin brothers and two other residents were able to evacuate the building.

A firefighter suffered burns and three others suffered minor injuries due to a structure collapse, according to Mayor W. Reed Gusciora.

Their conditions were stable when they were being transported to the hospital.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
