UNION CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say six people were left homeless and a firefighter was injured when a fast-moving fire severely damaged a two-story home in northern New Jersey.

The Jersey Journal (https://bit.ly/1usQ9Py) reports the three-alarm blaze in Union City broke out around 2:20 a.m. Saturday and was brought under control within an hour.

Investigators say the fire apparently started in a bedroom on the first floor, but the cause of the fiure remains under investigation.

One firefighter was treated at the scene for a minor leg injury, while one person who lived in the home suffered smoke inhalation but declined medical attention.

City officials and the Red Cross have helped provide temporary housing for the displaced residents.
