BAYONNE, N.J. — A fire tore through a Bayonne, New Jersey home on Saturday afternoon, quickly spreading to as many as three nearby houses.
Fire officials responded to the blaze at a residence at 84 Andrew St. between Avenue C and John F. Kennedy Boulevard in Bayonne shortly after 12 p.m.
It took firefighters more than an hour to bring it under control. Thick black smoke filled the streets and could be seen from miles away.
Neighboring structures were evacuated, according to the Bayonne police department, as neighbors stood on the street and watched.
Neighbors say the family that lived at 84 Andrew St. was able to get out okay... but they have now lost everything.
"All their documents, everything is inside," a witness said to PIX11 News.
At least 10 people have been left homeless, according to fire officials.
No injuries have been reported, according to officials.
