All eight occupants were out of the building when firefighters arrived, and one had sustained minor burns, Crawford said. That person was taken to Shore Medical Center in Somers Point by Northfield EMS for treatment. No names were released.

Fire companies from the Atlantic City International Airport and Northfield assisted the Pleasantville Fire Department  at the scene, while companies from Absecon and Ventnor provided coverage for the rest of the city.
