A massive fire at a Morristown apartment complex could be the subject of an investigation by Morris County law enforcement officials.
The fire was started at an apartment building located on Speedwell Avenue in Morristown, New Jersey. Morristown police and firefighters were sent to the area after getting a report about the blaze. Firefighters from other Morris County fire departments also offered assistance.
The blaze was stemmed by firefighters, but residents were not allowed to return to the building due to extensive property damage. The American Red Cross is reportedly helping tenants seek new accommodations.
Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt due to the fire.
Authorities have not released much information about the apartment fire. Depending on the findings of investigators, it’s possible that prosecutors could file arson charges in the case.
