Staff made it out before the three-alarm blaze tore through the Fairfield Road building, which isn't a boarding facility.

The fire broke out shortly after 9 p.m. and immediately went to two alarms, the Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department said.

Flames blew through the roof as firefighters conducted a "surround and drown," the department said.

The scene was cleared at 11:50 p.m.

Colleagues from Cedar Grove, Lincoln Park, Bloomfield, North Caldwell, West Caldwell, Pine Brook and Verona were among the mutual aid responders.

Authorities were trying to determine the cause.
