A fire broke out at Hoboken Charter School this morning, injuring five firefighters and prompting the evacuation of 200 students and faculty in the school and at a next-door daycare center, authorities said.
An emergency worker on the scene said the fire started on the top floor of the building shortly before 10:30 a.m. at the school, located at Seventh and Washington streets. Six firemen from Hoboken and one from North Hudson were treated for smoke inhalation, Molta said.

"School administrators and board members are presently looking at and evaluating various options for interim instructional space in Hoboken for the K-8 classes," said George Cahn, from Cahn Communications, who is also a parent at the Hoboken Charter School. Classes were canceled on Friday as well as Monday, Sept. 10., for the K through 8th grade students of the school.
