Overnight Paterson fire displaces 7 people


An overnight fire at a Main Street building displaced seven people early Tuesday morning, said deputy fire chief Pablo Del Valle.

Firefighters arrived at 868 Main Street at about 12:50 a.m. to find flames running from the front of the building to the cockloft area.

Fire was kept to a single-alarm at the three-story mixed-use building, said the deputy chief. He said no one was injured.

Seven displaced residents are being assisted by the American Red Cross.

Fire was brought under control at 1:26 a.m. and command terminated at 2:30, said Del Valle.
