Grey smoke began filling the air around West Front Street around 4 p.m. as fire tore through a number of buildings, eventually causing a wall to collapse at one of the structures, an incident captured on an eyewitness’s video and posted to social media. That building contained an upstairs apartment that was occupied but those people got out safely, Aumack said.

Firefighters were caught inside, however, said Charles Webster, a spokesman for the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office. Six firefighters all suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel, but it was unclear if all were hurt in the collapse.
