Residents Displaced Following Fire Nearly 300 residents are displaced after a fire at an Atlantic City high-rise apartment building on Thursday night.

It’s happened at Jeffrie’s Tower located in the 200 block of N. Vermont Ave.

Those evacuated were taken to the Inlet Tower which is located right next door. Some residents were also taken to the Uptown School.

The American Red Cross says they are assisting nearly 300 residents who have been displaced by the fire.
