The fire at the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office in Bridgeton was reported around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

It was contained to a victims-witness services office in a converted porch and did not spread to the larger building.

Officials tell The Daily Journal of Vineland they are looking into any link with the law-office fire in Vineland.

No one was injured in either fire.

The earlier fire was reported around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday at the office of Helmer, Conley and Kasselman. It has been labelled suspicious.
