ABC7:

Firefighters spent the overnight hours battling a massive five-alarm fire in New Jersey that broke out in one building and quickly spread to four others.

The incident happened on New York Avenue and 2nd Street in Union City.

Around 5:30 a.m., fire officials had deemed the blaze contained but not under control. They were dousing the buildings with a tower ladder and from down below, and it appeared several of the buildings would be uninhabitable by the time the fire was extinguished, which was accomplished a few hours later. Hotspots lingered.

    Is it my imagination, but are there way too may sticks not being used (see end of video showing apparatus)?
