Posted: Updated:

PASSAIC, N.J. (AP) — Three firefighters were injured in a fire that damaged three homes in Passaic early Friday.

One fireman was hospitalized complaining of back pain after he jumped from a second-story window when the flames flashed over.

The others sustained smoke inhalation crawling from the four-alarm blaze on Central Avenue after they became trapped.

Fire Chief Patrick Trentacost tells The Record newspaper (http://bit.ly/QMXcCi ) it appears the fire began in the basement and reached the attic before anyone noticed.

As many as 25 people were displaced.

The cause is under investigation.
