13 firefighters hospitalized after blaze at Newark college
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Essex County College is closed following a fire that left more than a dozen firefighters hospitalized after suffering heat exhaustion.
The campus is closed Monday because Sunday's fire left it without electricity.
Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose tells NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1YmcAs0 ) workers reported a possible electrical fire in the sub-basement of a building. Officials say the building was evacuated and the fire was extinguished.
Three of the 13 firefighters remained hospitalized Sunday evening. Ten have been released.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
