Officials in Woodbury are investigating a morning fire that damaged as many as three homes, injuring as many as seven people.

According to officials, crews responded to the 700 block of Mehorter Boulevard sometime around 3:40 a.m. for a report of a fast moving fire.

Just minutes after firefighters arrived the home collapsed, damaging two cars in the driveway. The fire which was place under control within approximately an hour, also destroyed a vacant home and a newly renovated home which according to authorities appears to be salvageable.

According to officials, three people were transported to Inspira Medical Center Woodbury with unspecified injuries but have since been discharged. The four other injuries were transported to Cooper University Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
