Located at 38 Jackson Street, firefighters responded to the building at 9:52 on Monday night.  When they arrived, smoke was coming out of the structure.

The main body of the fire was knocked down by 10:30 last night according to Fire Chief Peskens, although some small pockets were still smoldering at that time.  The fire scene was cleared by 1 o’clock this morning.  There have been no reports of any injuries.

Mo cause for the fire has been released at this time.  An investigation is underway.

The Jersey City Fire Department assisted Hoboken firefighters last night.
