MILLVILLE, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a man sustained burns during a fire in a unit of a senior citizens high-rise building in Millville.

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to gain control of the blaze on the seventh floor of the Riverview East building on Monday night.

Firefighter Steven Alcorn tells The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1fW6lm7 ) the residents were cooking with grease when it caught fire and they threw water on it. The water caused the flame to spread.

A woman was treated for smoke inhalation and another was treated for stress.

No names were released.
