NEWARK, N.J. -- 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.

Spokesman Thomas Fennelly says the fire doesn't appear to be suspicious, but the cause remains under investigation.

Fennelly says everyone in the second home managed to escape safely. Authorities say it appears some of the victims are related.
