BRIDGETON - A Thursday night fire at the Amity Heights Apartments has caused damaged to apartments, and has left residents displaced.
With gas and electric now shut off, all residents in building 8 of the Amity Heights Apartment complex have been affected, even those who didn't receive direct fire damage.
We spoke with residents who said they saw flames pouring out of unit 47.
Firefighters responded and even had to cut a hole in the roof to allow smoke go escape.
Maintenance personnel for the complex said that the damage inside unit 47 is significant, while unit 46 has water damage from firefighting equipment.
For now, residents that have been directly affected by fire damage have been put up in a hotel in Vineland by the management company, and it is unknown when they'll be able to return.
The fire continues to be investigated.
