At least two people were injured after a severe fire destroyed two homes in West Deptford (Gloucester County), New Jersey, early Thursday morning. Both houses have since collapsed.
Officials say the fire started around 4:15 a.m. Thursday morning on Tatum Street. It quickly spread to a nearby house.
Two other people are “missing”, according to a report by 6 ABC. But it is unclear whether those missing are those who were injured.
NBC10 television footage shows that at least one of the houses has collapsed.
Firefighters appear to have gotten the better of the fire as the flames are less intense than they were before. Smoke can still be seen billowing from the scene, as of 6 a.m. Thursday.
This is a developing story. We will have more details soon.
