Thursday, February 07, 2013

A four-alarm fire started in one Jersey City home and spread to another Thursday morning, leaving 10 residents homeless.

The fire broke out on Bayview Avenue, where houses are closely packed, just after 4 a.m.

The flames then jumped to the second home before firefighters were able to prevent further spreading.

Ten residents in the two houses were forced out.

A neighboring apartment building was also evacuated as a precaution.

Two firefighters sustained minor injuries battling the blaze. One had a head injury, while the other suffered a groin injury.

Local streets were closed around the fire scene. The cause is under investigation.
