The fire was reported at the Ocean Club condos on Route 35 in Brick Township around 4 p.m.

Heavy black smoke could be seen coming from the courtyard and wind was making the firefighting efforts more difficult.

The fire was extinguished by 6:30 p.m. but crews were still working to make sure the scene was safe.

At least one person was injured from smoke inhalation and approximately 30 residents were displaced from their homes.

Northbound Route 35 was closed from 8th Avenue to Falls Road.
