Home Destroyed, Vehicles Damaged In Brigantine Fire
Sad news to hear right before the start of the holiday season.
Brigantine fire crews were hard at work Wednesday morning putting out a fire that raged through a home on Longport Avenue. The Press of Atlantic City detailed the events that took place during the early morning hours of November 18th when the fire broke out. Apparently, there were people present in the two-story home at the time even though the house is reportedly used as a vacation home and not a primary residence, but luckily nobody suffered any injuries.
Crews had to have been working for some time before they were able to get the fire under control. It was reported that Brigantine firefighters were able to subdue the flames a bit after 5 a.m. It had to have been a strong one since more than the house itself were damaged as a result. Two vehicles that were reportedly parked in the Longport Avenue home's driveway didn't get away from the incident scot-free nor did the neighbors, unfortunately.
The fire was so intense that the homes next door to the house that caught fire endured some damage as well. The heat was so strong from the fire that more than one neighbor now has to deal with damage as a result. This is not what anyone wants to be forced to deal with a week before any holiday, but ultimately, nobody got hurt. Of course, that's what is most important.
