PASSAIC, N.J. (AP) - Officials are trying to determine what sparked a fire in a warehouse that spread to adjacent apartments in Passaic.

The fire broke out in the structure on 1st Street around 10 p.m. Monday and the roof collapsed. Flames then spread to the apartments on Market Street.

Fire Chief Joseph Cajzer says sprinklers in the apartments kept the fire in check.

Officials are helping residents who were displaced by the smoky fire.

Two firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.
