By rlsmetro on

Newark Firefighters made quick work out of a fast-moving building fire in the city's North Ward overnight.

A fire broke out inside a three-story building in the 200 block of Summer Avenue shortly before 1:45 a.m. 

Officials said firefighters stretched two lines after crews arrived and found smoke and flames coming from the roof of the building. 

According to reports, all occupants were out of the building, but firefighters rescued a dog inside a burning apartment on the second floor. 

Firefighters brought the blaze under control in under an hour with the cause under investigation. 

The fire displaced five adults and two children.
