NEW YORK — An earthquake has struck about 140 miles east of the capital of Fiji. There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-6.0 quake struck Thursday at a depth of 380 miles.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not immediately issue a tsunami alert.

The region lies on the "Ring of Fire" — an arc of earthquake and volcanic zones that stretches around the Pacific Rim. About 90 per cent of the world's quakes occur in the region.
