LAMBERTVILLE, N.J. -

Fire heavily damaged a home Tuesday morning in Lambertville.

At 8:55 a.m. Tuesday, the unidentified resident at 107 Clinton St. in Lambertville smelled smoke in the attic of her house and called 911. She got out of the house safely before the fire department arrived. The circa 1853 dwelling sustained major damage and partially collapsed due to the fire.

"The cause of the fire is undetermined and the investigation is ongoing," reported Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III. "Nothing appears suspicious at this time.”
