A fast-moving fire on Long Island claimed the life of a 31-year-old woman and critically injured another.

Firefighters responded to the Ronkonkoma home after getting a 911 call from a neighbor at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. The flames rapidly engulfed the entire house on Johnson Avenue within minutes.

The name of the dead person, who was found on the main floor of the house, has not been released. Eight other residents escaped and one was taken to Stony Book University Medical Center with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.

Fire officials are investigating the cause of the blaze but say the preliminary probe suggests it was not criminal in nature.
