Five people were treated at a hospital for smoke inhalation and minor injuries after a fire damaged a two-family home in northern New Jersey.

But it's not yet clear what caused the blaze at the Teaneck home, which broke out early Saturday. Fire officials say it appears that the fire started in an oven.

The blaze was contained to the back area of the home, and no major damage was reported.

The five people taken to the hospital all lived on the home's second floor.

Authorities say some other residents also suffered minor injuries, but refused treatment at the scene.
