Five firefighters were injured Sunday morning while fighting a five-alarm fire in northern New Jersey, authorities said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

What caused the fire, which began on the ground floor of a restaurant, is unknown, ABC News said. The fire spread to a local apartment building, though no one has reported any civilian injuries.

None of the firefighters were critically injured, though one suffered major cuts from a shattered window, caused by a backdraft-induced explosion, the Houston Chronicle said.
