No injuries reported when fire destroys home

UPPER FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A family of five was displaced when a fast-moving fire roared through their central New Jersey home.

No injuries were reported in the blaze on Heritage Drive, which was reported around 11:30 p.m. Saturday. But most of the home was destroyed in the fire, which took about an hour to extinguish.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation by the Monmouth County Fire Marshal. But officials tell the Asbury Park Press that the fire is not considered suspicious.

The five family members — two adults and three children — were home when the fire occurred, but all were able to safely escape the flames. Their names have not been disclosed.
