UNION CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Dozens of people in Union City were forced into the bitter cold by a 6-alarm fire Thursday night.
The fire began in one residential apartment building on 19th Street around 11:30 p.m. and quickly spread to two adjacent buildings.
“The fire just kept on, and kept on, and didn’t want to stop,” resident Amanda Deleon told CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell.
Firefighters battled the stubborn fire well into Friday. Flames were still visible at 6 a.m. and Union City firefighters dealt with hotspots through part of the afternoon.
