NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

At least nine Jersey City firefighters were overcome by the heat while battling a huge fire in the afternoon heat on Friday.

The fire broke out in a multistory building at Boyd Avenue and John F. Kennedy Boulevard West.

Flames tore through the roof and there was extensive damage to the building. The buildings on either side also showed fire damage.

Two of the firefighters were reportedly transported by EMS to a hospital. Their conditions were unknown. Several other firefighters at the scene were being treated for what appeared to be heat related conditions.

The fire had gone to four alarms by 1 p.m.  Temperatures were near 100 degrees at the time of the fire.

    A Point Pleasant resident frustrated with what he sees as slow action on the part of the Borough Council on making the town safer for pedestrians and bicyclists has started a petition urging the council to act. The petition, posted on change.org, said that while the council passed a Complete Streets ordinance last year and commissioned a report, little of substance has been done, Hagemeyer says. The council meets tonight at 7 at the municipal building.

    Workers continue making repairs after a New Jersey Transit train derailed on the Montclair-Boonton line. NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder says passengers on that line are facing delays of up to 20 minutes in both directions on Wednesday because the railroad can only use one track. The train derailed between the Bay Street and Walnut Street stations in Montclair on Tuesday afternoon. No one was injury and passengers were safely transferred from the train.
