Authorities say a New Jersey woman and her teenage son were killed when a fast-moving fire destroyed their home.
The woman's husband, an older son and that son's girlfriend were able to escape from the Ridgefield home after the fire broke out around 5 a.m. Saturday. All three were treated at Holy Name Hospital for smoke inhalation, officials said.
Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli says 55-year-old Jeralyn Scibetta and 14-year-old Daniel Scibetta died in the fire. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, but Molinelli said it was not considered suspicious.
Firefighters from several nearby towns helped Ridgefield crews battle the blaze, which burned for several hours. A neighbor and firefighters tried to rescue the trapped occupants, but authorities say the flames spread too fast.
