Firefighters used multiple handlines to extinguish the blaze. Weaver said it was brought under control at 6:06 p.m.

The occupants inside the home at the time of the fire were all able to self-evacuate. One person was treated for smoke inhalation and transported by McCabe EMS to a local hospital, Weaver said.

The building is temporarily uninhabitable, leaving eight residents displaced. According to Weaver, they are under the care of the Bayonne Office of Emergency Management and the Red Cross.

A fire investigation is underway to determine the cause. However, Weaver said the fire doesn’t appear to be suspicious in nature.

“I want to commend the men and women of our department, who relied on their training to act rapidly and efficiently to stop the spread of this fire quickly and prevent the spread to nearby structures,” Weaver said.
