House fire kills 6 in New Jersey

NEWARK, N.J. – Authorities say six people have been killed in a fast-moving fire that roared through a single-family home in New Jersey’s largest city.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said the blaze broke out about 4 a.m. Sunday in Newark. The fire soon spread to another residence, and both homes were destroyed.

Spokesman Thomas Fennelly said the fire doesn’t appear to be suspicious but the cause remains under investigation.

Fennelly said everyone in the second home managed to escape safely.

Authorities said it appears some of the victims are related.
