A fast-moving house fire in southern New Jersey killed four people, authorities said.

The fire in the two-story home in Lacey Township was reported around 12:30 p.m., said Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer. The home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, and black smoke spewed throughout the neighborhood.
