NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

Three firefighters were injured battling a four-alarm fire that severely damaged a New Jersey apartment building and left its residents homeless early Sunday morning. 

The blaze broke out at the house located at the corner of Hoyt and Devon Streets in Kearny around 2:00 a.m. in Kearny. It took almost three hours to bring under control and firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to nearby buildings. 

Fire officials said two firefighters were treated at a local hospital and released but another fireman remains hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. 

None of the residents displaced were injured but authorities don't know how many people lived in the building, which had six apartments. 

Fire officials do not know the cause of the blaze and where it started remains under investigation.
