4 houses destroyed in Jersey City fire
A fire swept through four homes on St. Paul's Avenue in Jersey City Sunday.
According to firefighters, the fire was sparked by one of the house's circuit breaker around 11 a.m. A couple living at the residence tried to reset the breaker when they saw flames shoot out.
Two dozen people have been displaced by the blaze. Some say they've lost all possessions.
"Everything I had was in that house ? that's gone," says Thomas Weinmann. Weinmann and his brother Richard were sleeping when the fire started and were alerted to it by neighbors knocking on their windows.
None of the residents were injured in the fire. One firefighter did suffer from smoke inhalation.
