Four killed, eight injured in N.J. motel fire

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. — A fire early Friday destroyed a New Jersey shore motel that was housing people displaced by Hurricane Sandy, killing four people and injuring eight, authorities said.

The blaze erupted at the wooden Mariner’s Cover Motor Inn in this popular summer resort town at around 5:30 a.m., and flames were shooting out of the building by the time firefighters arrived. At least one person leaped from a second-floor window to escape.
