Authorities say a Newark man was killed when a fast-moving fire roared through his two-story home.

City fire officials tell The Star-Ledger of Newark that the man was pulled from the burning home just before 10 a.m. Saturday and was pronounced dead a short time later.

His name has not been released, pending notification of relatives.

No other injuries were reported in the blaze on Palm Street, which was reported around 9:15 a.m. It was not immediately clear if anyone else lived in the residence.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Arson investigators have been called to the scene.
