New Jersey

WASHINGTON, N.J. — Authorities say four New Jersey police officers were treated for smoke inhalation after entering a burning home to try to rescue a woman trapped on the second floor.

Emergency responders were called just before 9 a.m. Saturday to the fire in Washington borough in Warren County.

Sgt. Jerry Magyar told lehighvalleylive.com that officers were met by heavy smoke, and once fire department crews arrived they retreated and the borough fire department brought the woman out.

She was flown to Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, where her condition wasn’t immediately available.
