WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Thousands of utility customers temporarily lost their power when a fast-moving fire severely damaged an unoccupied home in a southern New Jersey resort community.

But Wildwood authorities say it’s not yet known what sparked the fire, which broke out Saturday night at a home in the 300 block of West Wildwood Avenue.

The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/168qje0) reports that firefighters battled the blaze for nearly three hours before it was brought under control. Power was cut to dozens of nearby homes and businesses at the request of the fire chief because electrical lines were involved in the fire.

One firefighter was injured in a fall and taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
