Two People Die in New Jersey House Fire

State Officials Suspend Pharmacist for Incident Involving Bogus Cialis

Two People Die in New Jersey House FireA woman and her five-year-old granddaughter were killed in a house fire in Little Ferry earlier this month. Authorities say the fire consumed most of a three-story home on Washington Avenue.

According to witnesses, there was a loud explosion inside the home around 11 p.m. on the night of August 17. They say that the blaze quickly spread throughout the multifamily residence, causing some tenants to jump or drop to the ground from upper levels. Local police officers happened to be in the neighborhood when the fire started and were catching children being dropped from upper stories by their parents.

The young girl and her grandmother apparently lived on the top floor of the house, and were trapped by the flames. Fire officials say the heat of the blaze made it impossible to get to them for a significant period of time. Both were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital. The girl died the next morning and her grandmother died that evening. The girl’s mother, also in the home at the time of the fire, suffered serious injuries after jumping from the third floor. Police say at least six others were treated and released for a variety of injuries.
