A massive four-alarm fire has destroyed an apartment complex in West Windsor Township, New Jersey on Wednesday afternoon. Twenty-two people from seven families are now without homes. With daylight Thursday morning, the severe damage the fire caused could be seen. The roof is gone from the building and the siding is melted away. The flames broke out at about 3:30 p.m. in the unit block of Taylor Court at Building 8 of the Avalon Princeton Junction Apartments. Views from Chopper 6 showed flames shooting through the roof of the three-story apartment building. "They had heavy fire on arrival from the second and third floor and it quickly extended from there," said Lt. Mike McMahon with the West Windsor Township Police Department. Roughly 200 firefighters battled the blaze for four hours. A fourth alarm was struck just before 5 p.m. before it was brought under control an hour later.
