DEAL, N.J. (WABC) -- An investigation is underway after flames tore through a home in New Jersey.

The two-alarm fire broke out just after 8 o'clock Saturday night in a three-story house near Esplanade and Milan Place in Deal, in Monmouth County.

No one was hurt, but the home was badly damaged.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

Officials say the blaze appeared to be concentrated in the top two floors of the home, which was built in 1909.
