3-alarm fire damages 2 homes in North Bergen

A three-alarm fire damaged two homes in North Bergen Thursday afternoon.

Fire officials say the fire started in a vacant two-family home on Meadowview Avenue and quickly spread to a neighboring home. Firefighters wet down several houses on the block to prevent the flames from spreading.

Residents say a couple lives in the second home with their two daughters. One neighbor says the couple had just recently renovated the home damaged in the fire.

Firefighters say no one was injured in the blaze. Officials say some firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.
