Major blaze burning in downtown Jersey City

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Firefighters are battling a multialarm blaze in the downtown area of New Jersey's second largest city.

The Jersey Journal reports the fire broke out Wednesday afternoon and could be seen on the top floor and roof of a Grove Street building that houses a pizzeria on its ground floor.

One firefighter was injured while battling the blaze, but further details were not immediately available.

Firefighters closed off several major streets in the downtown area while they battled the blaze, causing major delays for commuters and people who were headed out for the holidays.

    Newark school enrollment problems

    Friday, August 22 2014 5:17 PM EDT2014-08-22 21:17:11 GMT
    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.
