PATETRSON, N.J. (AP) - Two people were killed when a fast-moving roared through a northern New Jersey home, and authorities were searching for another person who also may have been killed.

Paterson fire officials tell The Record (https://bit.ly/1usBhzZ) that the two-alarm fire on Union Avenue was reported around 4:40 a.m. Sunday.

Firefighters tried to enter the home, but initially were forced back by heavy flames. One victim was found on the first floor, while the other was found on the second floor. The victim’s pet dog also died.

The names of the two victims have not been released. Information about the person authorities were looking for was not disclosed.

The fire also spread to a neighboring home, causing some damage and displacing at least seven people.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
