Residents Displaced Following Fire Nearly 300 residents are displaced after a fire at an Atlantic City high-rise apartment building on Thursday night.

It’s happened at Jeffrie’s Tower located in the 200 block of N. Vermont Ave.

Authorities say firefighters and police officers worked through the snow and frigid temps to evacuate the residents.

A police spokesperson tells CBS Philly that crews went floor by floor to rescue the residents, some of whom were elderly.

Those evacuated were taken to the Inlet Tower which is located right next door. Some residents were also taken to the Uptown School.

The American Red Cross says they are assisting nearly 300 residents who have been displaced by the fire.

No injuries have been reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Witnesses tell CBS3 that those being evacuated reported smelling an electrical type fire.
