Massive blaze in Long Branch, NJ
LONG BRANCH, New Jersey -- Several people have been left homeless after a massive multialarm fire destroyed a four-story apartment building in a Jersey Shore community.
Long Branch officials say no injuries have been reported in the blaze, which broke out around 10:30 a.m. Monday in a building near Brighton and Ocean Avenues in the Monmouth County town. The fire apparently started in a dance studio, which also was destroyed, and later spread to the apartment building and another nearby three-story building.
Dozens of firefighters from Long Branch and several nearby towns battled the blaze for several hours, and many were still working at the scene early Monday night. But most of the fire had reportedly been brought under control.
It wasn't immediately known how many people lived in the apartment building.
