2 Firefighters Hurt While Battling Trenton Blaze

Two Trenton firefighters were taken to the hospital and five people were displaced by a fast-moving fire that damaged a vacant row home and an adjacent residence in New Jersey’s capital city.

Authorities say the fire started in the basement of the vacant home around 2:30 a.m. Monday and quickly spread throughout the residence. But firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control in about 40 minutes.

The fire also caused smoke damage to the adjacent home, where a family of five lived. The two adults and three children were relocated to another residence by the Red Cross.

One firefighter suffered first-degree burns to the face and another had heat exhaustion. Both were treated at a hospital and later released.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
