    A massive fire displaced 35 people from their homes this morning.

    Firefighters came to the rescue of two people who were trapped in a blazing building in New Jersey this morning.

    Authorities got a call about a three-alarm fire on William Street in East Orange just after 12 a.m. Flames were leaping through the roof of the three-story brick building.

    Nearly three dozen people had to shack up in a shelter at a nearby school because the fire made their homes uninhabitable.

    One person was taken to University Hospital with minor injuries.
