Police say a northern New Jersey nursing was being evacuated early Tuesday as a fire broke out.

Kearney Police Officer Robert McDonald said patients were being taken out of the West Hudson Continuing Care Center around 6 a.m.

He said he did not have details on the fire.

St. Barnabas Health Care System spokeswoman Ellen Green said that until about a month ago, the system operated the facility. She said it was sold recently, though.
