A large fire consumed several buildings in a downtown district in New Jersey, though no injuries were reported. 
 
Authorities said the fire broke out at the construction site late Sunday and spread across the street to another unfinished apartment building in Bound Brook.
 
The fire also torched two houses and an electronics store.
 
Dozens of residents were forced to evacuate as the fire spread, and power outages were still affecting parts of the town early Monday. 
 
The cause of the fire wasn't immediately known. 
 
Bound Brook is about 30 miles west of New York's Staten Island.
