Eight residents displaced after two-alarm fire

Eight residents were displaced from their homes after a two-alarm fire on November 20, according to Fire Chief Keith Weaver. At 4:26 p.m., the Fire Department was dispatched to a fire at 95 Hobart Avenue. According to Weaver, arrived companies found fire and smoke coming from the three-story two family home.

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.

Friends of Liberty State Park fight against commercial air tour agreement

Jersey City residents and activists including the Friends of Liberty State Park organization have come out against a commercial air tour agreement that would allow helicopter tours over the park.

A draft of the agreement by the National Park Service and the Federal Aviation Administration set to be signed in December would allow an aerial limit of 1,000 feet around the Statue of Liberty and Governor’s Island. The proposed plan would also require tours to fly within a mile of the parks in a clockwise direction.

President of Friends of Liberty State Park Sam Pesin, Hoboken City Councilman Phil Cohen, and Congressman-elect for the 8th Congressional District Robert Menendez, Jr. have all vocalized their opposition to the agreement.
