BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say one person died and nine residents were displaced when a fire broke out at a southern New Jersey apartment complex.

Brick Township fire officials tell the Asbury Park Press (https://on.app.com/1y3D0ie) that the fire started shortly before 8 p.m. Monday in the kitchen of a fourth-floor unit at the Chambers Bridge Residence complex. They say the resident there turned on the wrong burner on her stove and accidentally ignited some items.

A first-floor resident who had been safely evacuated from the building suffered a heart attack and died a short time later. But none of the displaced residents were injured.

Officials say the fire was extinguished within the hour and was contained within that apartment.
