Man, son die in North Arlington, NJ fire — neighbor’s ladder saves mom
NORTH ARLINGTON — A 75-year-old man and his adult son were killed in a house fire early Friday morning.
A resident of 1 Ninth Street called 911 about 4:16 a.m. Rescuers removed Safwat Saad and his 44-year-old son Maged Saad from the single-family home but they were pronounced dead at the scene.
A neighbor's ladder was used to rescue a 66-year-old woman, who was hospitalized.
The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office is investigating the cause of the fire, although officials said Friday that it did not appear suspicious.
