According to the Neptune Police Department, the blaze at 1244 Corlies Avenue was called in around 2 p.m. It took about 45 minutes to extinguish it, however, the road there remains filled with emergency vehicles and authorities are urging you to avoid the area through the evening rush.

 

There's no word on the cause and the police tell Townsquare Media News that no one was injured, although TV outlets report some were treated for smoke inhalation.

Firefighters rescued a woman and three kids living behind the homes inside a bungalow.
