PERTH AMBOY — Exploding ammunition in a burning central New Jersey home hindered firefighters Monday.

Authorities said firefighters couldn’t battle the flames inside the two-story home Monday until they were certain all the ammo had cooled down.

Firefighters initially directed water from the outside through a second floor window.

A man who lived in the home with his mother was treated for smoke inhalation.

Three handguns, a shotgun and rifle were turned over the police.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
