6 dead in house fire in New Jersey's biggest city

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say six people have been killed in a fast-moving fire that roared through a single-family home in New Jersey's largest city.

The Essex County prosecutor's office says the blaze broke out at around 4 a.m. Sunday in Newark. The fire soon spread to another residence, and both homes were destroyed.

Prosecutors say the cause of the fire remains is investigation.

Authorities say it appears some of the victims are related.
