Three firefighters injured in overnight Trenton, N.J. house fire

    Falling debris from a second floor ceiling sent three New Jersey firefighters to the hospital overnight.

    According to NBC10, a two-alarm house fire broke out in a vacant, three-story home on the 300 block of Church Street in Trenton, New Jersey. The fire began at around 11 p.m. Friday and spread to a second home.

    Neighbors report that there were people cooking inside the vacant property, but whomever was inside the building had already evacuated when help arrived.
