LITTLE EGG HARBOR TWP., New Jersey (WPVI) -- A fire left a house at the Jersey Shore in ruins and sent one person to the hospital.

The fire started just after midnight Tuesday on the 100 block of Lake Winnepesaukee Drive in Little Egg Harbor Township, Ocean County.

Officials say the two people who were inside the home made it out, but suffered smoke inhalation. One was taken to the hospital for treatment.
