PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a fast-moving fire at a duplex in northern New Jersey has displaced nearly 30 people. But no inuries were reported. The fire in Paterson was reported around 3:45 a.m. Saturday. The blaze started in the duplex and nearly spread to a nearby single-family home. That home and another nearby residence suffered smoke damage from the fire, along with water damaged that occurred as firefighters battled the duplex blaze. Twenty-nine people overall were displaced by the fire, though it wasn’t clear Saturday how many people lived in each residence. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
