BOGOTA, New Jersey (WABC) — One person was killed in a fire in New Jersey early Saturday morning, the mayor of Bogota said.
Flames broke out at a home near River Road and West Main Street in Bogota shortly after 6 a.m.

Part of the siding of the single-family house was completely melted in the blaze.
The victim of the deadly fire has not yet been identified, but Mayor Chris Kelemen said he was “a very nice gentleman who was very kind and extremely proud of his family and the country.”
No other injuries were reported.
