A man died after fire broke out this morning in a room at a South Jersey motel.

Flames began around 8:30 a.m. at the Travel Inn along New Jersey Route 38 and the Mount Holly Bypass in Lumberton, N.J.

Burlington County Dispatchers said that firefighters knocked the flames back and got the blaze quickly under control but it was too late to save a man.

The fire appeared contained to Room 309.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead, firefighters could be seen entering neighboring units as a red sheet hung over the room where the unidentified victim was found.

Firefighters didn't immediately reveal how the fire began.

This blaze came a couple weeks after another New Jersey motel blaze. That earlier fire in Point Pleasant Beach left four dead, eight hurt and more without a place to stay.
