Clifton fire officials tell The Record that the fire was reported around 1 p.m. Tuesday, and all the residents inside the two-story home escaped safely. But the cause of three-alarm blaze has not been determined.

It was not immediately known how many firefighters were injured, and further details on their conditions were not disclosed.

Authorities say firefighters had to deal with water pressure issues while battling the blaze and had to tap a number of fire hydrants in the area.
