Seven people were displaced as a result of a one-alarm fire, according to Bayonne Fire Chief Keith Weaver.
Firefighters were dispatched to 26 Andrew Street at 5:02 p.m. for a report of smoke coming from the roof area.
Units found smoke and fire from the roof. Firefighters used two handlines to extinguish the blaze, which was declared under control at 5:21 p.m.
No injuries were reported. An investigation into the Aug. 3 blaze is underway, but the fire does not appear suspicious.
The building department responded and deemed the four-family structure temporarily uninhabitable. As a result, seven people are currently displaced. They are under the care of Bayonne OEM and the Red Cross.
