PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A fast-moving house fire in Philadelphia has left three people injured.

But it’s not yet clear what sparked the blaze, which broke out around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say a 28-year-old man was being treated at a hospital for serious burns, while two other men were being treated there for smoke inhalation. But their names and further details on their conditions have not been disclosed.

Heavy smoke and fire was showing from the home’s basement when firefighters arrived. But they were able to bring the blaze under control a short time later.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
