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.
