South Amboy home destroyed after transformer fire

SOUTH AMBOY -

Officials say a telephone pole fire kicked off a chain of destruction in South Amboy.

Firefighters first responded to Henry Street Friday.

They evacuated the surrounding houses just minutes before a transformer exploded.

No one was injured, but a house that caught fire was destroyed.

"I went for a cup of coffee because I couldn't get back in the house and when I came back the house was on fire," says Hayden Nebus, of South Amboy.

No other houses caught fire.

The Red Cross is assisting the man who lost his home.
