ORANGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – At least three people were killed after a fire broke out inside an abandoned home in Orange early Sunday morning, police said.
The three were believed to be squatters, CBS 2’s Alice Gainer reported. There are bars on the windows and the men were unable to get out of the home, according to police.
Authorities said the flames, which broke out around 1 a.m., were simply too intense.
One person was rescued from inside the home on Reock Street, an area where there are a lot of abandoned buildings.
