Flames started at the home located on the 600 block of Ship Avenue just after 1:30 Saturday morning and smoke was still coming from the home three hours later.

The name of the officer was not disclosed by Roma.

Two dogs including a K-9 were rescued from the home and taken by Beachwood First Aid to the Associated Humane Hospital in Tinton Falls. Both dogs are expected to be okay.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
