Breaking line in .htaccess

how can I break the link with this code? I tried to include \n but it doesn't work. The code will write to .htaccess file.

$ip = "deny from $REMOTE_ADDR\n" ;
$banip = '.htaccess';
$fp = fopen($banip, "a");
$write = fputs($fp, $ip);

.htaccess file output, it cannot break the line in between "deny from"

<Files 403.shtml>
order allow,deny
allow from all
deny from from 456.122.8.10deny from 696.122.8.10

thank you

If that doesn't work, try:
$ip = "\r\ndeny from $REMOTE_ADDR";
