HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A woman and a 9-month-old baby died Friday in an early morning fire in New Jersey that also injured three others.

The fire started just after 3:30 a.m. in the two-and-a-half-story, woodframe duplex on Woodlawn Avenue, causing a partial roof collapse, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Firefighters found the baby girl and a woman in her 40s dead inside, authorities said. Three others were taken to a hospital with injuries. Their conditions were unknown.

Authorities have not released any names.

Officials were awaiting autopsy results and the cause of the fire was under investigation.
