A fire at a Pearl Street house Tuesday night claimed a woman’s life, Chief Michael Postorino told News 12 New Jersey.

The fire broke out around 7 p.m. and spread quickly. Firefighters managed to rescue one woman who was hanging out an upper-floor window but were unable to reach a second woman in time, Postorino told the station.

Neighbors said the home was abandoned but frequently used by squatters.

A second blaze broke out nearby as firefighters were still working to contain the Pearl Street fire . The second fire took at least two hours to bring under control, News 12 reported.
