Four people—including two firefighters—were injured in a house fire Sunday afternoon in Newark, authorities said.
The blaze broke out in a two-story residence at 39 Sunset Avenue in the city’s Lower Vailsburg neighborhood around 12:35 p.m. and spread to the home next door, public safety officials said in a statement.
People were inside at the time of the fire, which was brought under control in about 20 minutes.
Two women were hospitalized with injuries, while two firefighters were treated for shoulder injuries.
The Red Cross of New Jersey helped provide eight people from two families with temporary housing and clothing, it said in a tweet.
The cause and origin of the fire remains under investigation, fire officials said.
