Took Life of One; Left 4 in Critical Condition and Overcame 27 Police Officers

Statement by the City of Perth Amboy Administration:

PERTH AMBOY – The investigation conducted by the Perth Amboy Police Department, Perth Amboy Fire Department, Middlesex Prosecutor’s Office and Middlesex County Fire Marshal’s Office has been finalized. A clay liner within the chimney at the multi-family dwelling located on 185 Fayette Street had collapsed. This obstructed the flow of Carbon Monoxide exhaust from building, and caused high levels of Carbon Monoxide to be released into the apartment. The building owner indicated that the carbon monoxide and smoke detectors were fully functional in December. However, it was not operational at the time of the incident in the apartment.
