LODI, N.J. -- No injuries were reported in an overnight Lodi fire that destroyed two houses.

Roughly 10 people were displaced, Fire Chief Ron Cannici told Daily Voice.

"One building is down and another is pretty much gone," he said just after 8 a.m. "A demolition crew is on the way."

Flames were shooting out the front and side of one of the River Street homes and then jumped to another when emergency responders arrived around 4 a.m., Cannici said.

Everyone got out OK, he said.

Responders included firefighters from Garfield, Hackensack, Maywood, Rochelle Park and Saddle Brook, the chief said.

A fire marshal was at the scene trying to determine the cause.
