BURLINGTON COUNTY, N.J. (WTXF) - Two people were taken to the hospital as firefighters battled a house fire in in Delanco, Burlington County early Thursday morning.
Crews responded to the 600 block of Hickory Street around 2 a.m. to find the home engulfed in flames.
Fire officials say people in neighboring homes made it out safely before flames intensified, and two adults who were taken to the hospital are expected to be okay.
