    One person suffered injuries after a three-alarm fire broke out in Aberdeen Township, New Jersey — gutting three homes, police say.

    The blaze broke out around 11:30 a.m. Thursday on Highfield Avenue, near the Garden State Parkway, according to police.

    The intense flames burned faster than firefighters could pour water due to the high, gusty winds, which prompted the fire that started in one home to spread to two others. 

    A man living in the house where the fire allegedly began suffered minor injuries and was taken to Bay Shore Hospital, while neighbors took in the residents and pets of the other two homes destroyed in the blaze.

    "We all look out for each other," neighbor Rolando Person said. "They need my house, it's open."

    Police, EMS and fire departments from multiple towns responded to the scene.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
