One person was killed when a fast-moving fire tore through a home on Long Island late Sunday.

The flames broke out just before 10 p.m. at the house on New York Avenue in Melville.

It took firefighters about half an hour to get the blaze under control.

Investigators are looking into what caused the fire, and the arson squad was at the scene.

The victim has not yet been identified.
