North Hudson Regional Fire Deputy Chief Charles Thomas says more than 100 firefighters are battling a fire at the Roc Harbour housing complex in North Bergen.

Thomas says gas lines that had been fueling the fire have been shut off. He says no major injuries have been reported beyond minor slips and falls due to icy conditions.

Investigators are looking into what started the fire, which is burning in three buildings of the 17-building complex.

Each building has four apartments, and the roof on one has collapsed.

Residents are still struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy, which flooded the complex.

The buildings jut out into the Hudson River just across from Manhattan.
