HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — No one was hurt in a Saturday evening fire in a condo at the Woodlands complex, just west of the Hamilton Mall.
Firefighters were still inside the unit and light smoke was visible at 8:45 p.m. Officials would give few details but confirmed no one was injured.
A manager at the Woodlands said no one was living in the burned condo.
Jose Paz, a security officer at the complex, said ambulances and firetrucks got to the scene quickly.
But there was still smoke damage, and possibly more, to at least two neighboring condos, he added.
“Thank God no one was hurt,” Paz said.
