Fire officials in the Hunterdon County tell the Star-Ledger at least 15 units were affected by the fire at the Union Hills complex on Sam Bonnell Drive that broke out around 6:30 p.m. Saturday night in a bush according to ABC 7.

40-50 MPH winds that picked up as a cold front moved through the area blew the fire across rooftops.Chief Walt Dorf told ABC 7 that in 30 years of fighting fires he has never seen a fire like this one.

The fire created bright flames and a strong odor that could be seen from Interstate 78. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” Gail Zawacki told the Express-Times.  “The flames were so huge. It was horrifying.”

Hours after the blaze was under control firefighters were tearing aluminum siding off the units to reach hot spots.

No fatalities or injuries were reported.

 

 

The Red Cross has set up a mercy shelter for residents.
