UNION TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — More than a dozen Union Township residents are displaced after a fire ripped through a condominium complex Saturday night.

After WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, firefighters from Hunterdon, Warren and Somerset counties doused gallons of water on the blaze that broke out around 7 p.m. Saturday. On Sunday morning, large icicles hung from the charred Union Hills complex on Sam Bonnell Drive.

There were no injuries reported.

Many of the residents are staying with families and friends. But Joshua Dickson from a nearby Holiday Inn said the hotel is providing rooms and meals for three families with nowhere else to go.

“I feel sorry for the people that are out there,” Dickson said. “They don’t have nothing left. At least the Holiday Inn will be able to provide meals and a roof over their head until they get stable again.”

The investigation into what caused the fire is ongoing.
