100 Residents Displaced by Thanksgiving Fire at New Jersey Apartment Complex

A fire at an apartment complex forced about 100 people to be evacuated Thanksgiving morning.

The blaze started shortly before 7 a.m. at the building in Toms River. The East Dover Fire Company says residents reported black smoke coming from the fourth floor of the five-story building.

When firefighters arrived, they found a heavy smoke condition on the fourth and fifth floors.

Police said about 100 people were taken to a temporary shelter at Toms River High School South.

Some residents suffered from smoke inhalation, but there were no other injuries.
