Firefighters quickly put out a blaze on Broadway with no injuries reported on Sept. 19, according to the Bayonne Fire Department.

Bayonne firefighters responded to a call of smoke on the roof of 423 Broadway at 4:45 p.m.

Units found fire on the roof of the one-story commercial building. Firefighters used a handline to extinguish the blaze just as the fire started to extend into a neighboring three-story, mixed-use building.

Bayonne Fire Chief Keith Weaver said the quick response and action of the one-alarm assignment kept the fire from spreading farther into the larger building.

The fire was placed under control in about 15 minutes.

No injuries were reported. One family was temporarily displaced.

Weaver said an investigation is underway. However, the fire does not seem suspicious. The Bayonne Building and Health Departments and OEM also responded to the scene.
