JERSEY CITY - Two firefighters and two residents were injured in a three-alarm row home fire in Jersey City early Monday.

The fire broke out in a row home on Bergen Avenue at around 5:30 a.m. The fire quickly spread to at least two adjoining buildings.

Fire officials say two firefighters were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. One received a shoulder injury and the other suffered from smoke inhalation.
