Man Rescued from “Vacant” House Fire in Trenton

TRENTON — City firefighters rescued a man who was hanging out of a second-floor window as he tried to escape a fire in a vacant house on Walklett’s Alley last night, officials said.

Heavy smoke was pouring from the house, just off Bayard Street, when firefighters arrived at 10:46 p.m., Battalion Chief Todd Fell said. They rescued the man and doused the fire within 10 minutes.

The man was treated at the scene by Trenton EMS, but it was unclear whether he required further medical attention, officials said, who added it was unclear why he was in the vacant house.

The fire began on the first floor, Fell said, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
