Hoboken’s stunning skyline views were obscured by smoke late last night, as a fire broke out on Observer Highway near Madison Street. That block sits adjacent to the Hoboken Fire Department’s Station 2, who responded immediately.
The fire was extinguished, and no injuries were reported. Nevertheless, a number of residents have been displaced from their homes.
On the scene at the fire at 510/512/514 Observer Hwy. The fire has been extinguished & no injuries but a number of residents will be displaced due to damage. Thank you @HobokenFire, @HobokenPD, OEM, Hob Vol Ambulance Corps & JCFD for your assistance. pic.twitter.com/0sOQsd9DHr

EDIT: We initially attributed the lead photograph to the Mayor’s twitter feed. However, we have since been informed that the amazing photo was in fact taken by David Pirmann.
