Authorities say three buildings were involved in the fatal crash of a jet near a small New Jersey airport, though only two sustained major damage.

Police in Carlstadt say two of the buildings sustained fire damage mostly to their exteriors. The third structure, the town's public works building, didn't sustain any fire damage, but wreckage was strewn across the building's parking lot.
