PHOTOS: Two firefighters were treated — one for burns and other for cuts on his hand — after a two-alarm Tenafly house blaze ignited by a lightning strike this afternoon. Both were later released from the hospital.

Bergenfield, Cresskill, Dumont and Englewood firefighters, along with Tenafly police and EMS, joined their borough colleagues at the 2½-story River Edge Road house after the blaze broke out just before 2:15 p.m.

The fire began in the attic and hidden knee wall voids on the second floor, Tenafly Assistant Fire Chief Mark Fredrick told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
