WEEHAWKEN, New Jersey (WABC) -- A massive fire tore through homes in Weehawken, New Jersey late Wednesday night.
Officials say the fire started on Jane Street at around 10:45 p.m. and quickly spread to engulf two adjacent homes
The flames spit ash and debris all over the neighborhood.
"There's a considerable amount of soot and ash in my hair just from being on my roof. It's just raining down," Ben Warburton said.
Some quick-thinking residents were able to get outside and hose down their own home before flames spread even further.
Firefighters from the city of Bayonne helped North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue as they fought the blaze throughout the night.
Nearby in Union City, a fire on 8th Street has left 20 people homeless. It broke out around the same time as the Weehawken fire.
Thankfully, no one was injured.
