A 3-alarm fire consumed the attic area of a two-story dwelling at the corner of 87th Street & Third Avenue, North Bergen, shortly after 1:30 a.m., Sunday morning.  The fire sent residents into the below freezing weather and the spray from water that firefighters were using coated the streets and their gear with ice.

It was said that a firefighter sustained injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Please check back for more updates.
