PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A fast-moving fire in a Philadelphia rowhome has killed a toddler and a woman and left four other people injured.

The fire at the two-story rowhome was reported around 2 a.m. Friday and was brought under control about an hour later. Firefighters found the bodies of the woman and the young boy inside the residence a short time later.

Authorities say at least three of the four injured people were hurt when they jumped from the second floor of the home. But their names and further details on their injuries have not been disclosed.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
