  POINT PLEASANT – A Pleasant Place home was destroyed by a fire that broke out Sunday afternoon, officials said.

  When authorities arrived, the residents – as well as their pets – had already left the house with no injuries. A neighbor who was outside was treated for smoke inhalation. Other neighbors were evacuated from their residences as a precaution, Point Pleasant police said.

  The fire was contained to just the home. The Point Pleasant Fire Department Station 75 and Point Pleasant First Aid Squad 35 responded.

  The Ocean County Fire Marshal arrived to investigate and although the cause was not officially released, there was nothing deemed suspicious, police said. The home was secured but it was determined to be uninhabitable.    


  A portion of Herbertsville Road was temporarily closed while emergency units worked the scene, police said.
