Heat makes battling two New Jersey fires difficult
EDISON (WABC) -- The sizzling heat made it difficult for firefighters to battle fires in Edison and Union City on Wednesday night.
The three-alarm fire in Edison started at the Rivendell Heights condo complex on 1602 Yosko Drive at around 6:40 p.m.
The fire damaged about 25 percent of the building, including a large portion of the roof. Ten families were displaced, but no injuries were reported to residents or firefighters. The fire was under control within an hour, and the cause is still under investigation.
The five-alarm fire in Union City started in a three-story building on 2816 Kennedy Boulevard at around 9:20 p.m.
Extra firefighters were called in for relief purposes because of the intense heat. ---
