8 displaced when fire damages 2 Trenton homes

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say eight people were displaced by a fire that affected two homes in New Jersey's capital city.

Trenton fire officials say the blaze started around 9 p.m. Friday at a single-family home on South Clinton Avenue. Flames from the fires then spread to the second-floor bathroom of a multifamily home.

Firefighters battled both blazes for several hours before bringing them under control early Saturday. Many of the firefighters then left the scene a short time later, but had to be recalled around 3 a.m. Saturday when cleanup crews saw smoke coming from the multifamily home.

No injuries were reported in either fire, both of which remained under investigation Saturday afternoon.

The American Red Cross helped the displaced residents — six adults and two children — find temporary housing.
