ELIZABETH, N.J. — Firefighters rescued two people out of a third-floor window while their back stairs were burning this morning, authorities said.

The fire started in a back porch enclosure just after 6 a.m., said Battalion Chief Tom Walsh. The rear part of the house burned in the stairwell, blocking two residents’ escape route.

The two were pulled out by firefighters, and there were no injuries reported, Walsh added. The fire was completely extinguished before 8 a.m., Walsh said. No injuries were reported.
