TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a faulty electrical cord sparked a fire that displaced six people and damaged three row homes in New Jersey’s capital city.

WCAU-TV in Philadelphia (https://bit.ly/1m6uRr5) reports the two-alarm fire started shortly before 7 a.m. Sunday on the second floor of a home on the 400 block of Grand Street in Trenton. It soon spread to two adjacent homes, but firefighters were able to bring the fire under control about 40 minutes later.

No residents were injured in the blaze. But officials say one firefighter was treated at a hospital for dehydration.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The American Red Cross was providing assistance to the displaced residents.
