YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Rutherford family was burned out of its home by a fire last night that brought several companies.

Rutherford firefighters had the Santiago Avenue blaze under control within an hour, with assistance from their colleagues in Lyndhurst, North Arlington and Wallington.

Also responding were Rutherford and Lyndhurst ambulance corps and the Rutherford Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary.

No injuries were reported in the blaze, which broke out just after 7 p.m.

The cause doesn’t appear suspicious, Rutherford Police Capt. Patrick Feliciano said this morning.

Responding Officers Frank Ingles and Michael Merli found the residents and their family pet outside, Feliciano said.

“They will be temporarily staying with relatives,” he said.
