(EDGEWATER, N.J.) — Yankees announcer John Sterling and hundreds of others were left homeless after a massive fire tore through a luxury apartment complex in New Jersey Wednesday.
With the flames engulfing The Avalon at Edgewater in the city of Edgewater, located along the Hudson River across from Manhattan, plumes of thick, black smoke spread from the blaze.
New York emergency officials advised residents in Manhattan and the Bronx that they might see or smell smoke.
Residents were ordered to evacuate and were led to a nearby school. As the fire continued to rage, hundreds who lived at the complex, including New York Yankees announcer John Sterling, wondered what would be left of their homes.
“I don’t know what to expect. Now, I have nowhere to go. And I need a toothbrush,” Sterling told the New York Daily News after finding a hotel room.
