JERSEY CITY, New Jersey — Seventeen people were displaced by a fast-moving fire that damaged three homes in Jersey City.

No injuries were reported in the fire, which was reported around 10:20 a.m. Sunday at a home on Stevens Avenue in Jersey City. It was brought under control about 45 minutes later.

The Jersey Journal (http://bit.ly/1F0KuZY) reports the fire started in a two-story home, and the second-floor of that residence was gutted. Two adjacent homes primarily sustained water damage.

Sixteen adults and a child were displaced by the fire. The American Red Cross was supplying aid and other assistance to several of those people.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
