Massive New Jersey Fire Leaves Hundreds Homeless

By

A massive fire broke out in an apartment complex in Edgewater, New Jersey, yesterday afternoon, leaving hundreds homeless and confusing anyone in Manhattan who happened to catch a glimpse across the Hudson last night. The five-alarm blaze consumed much of the Avalon at Edgewater apartment complex, and was so huge that smoke from it could be seen as far as the Bronx. Thankfully, no deaths or serious injuries occurred. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
