Extensive video from homer218 of a three-alarm house fire early Sunday morning on Park Street in Hackensack, NJ. You can hear an evacuation order at about 12:00 on the video.
A 28-year-old firefighter from Engine Company 2 hurt his back after slipping and falling on icy ground, and a woman who was being evacuated from a nearby house suffered an asthma attack after inhaling smoke, said Justin Derevyanik, spokesman for the Hackensack Fire Department.
Authorities believe the blaze started in a first-floor bedroom at 433 Park St. and spread to 435 Park St., Derevyanik said.
Firefighters, alerted to the fire at 4:56 a.m., arrived to find thick smoke billowing out of the 2½-story wood frame house and the flames already leaping to the second home, also a 2½-story wood house, he said.
