Two Paterson House Fires Displace 10 on Wednesday Afternoon

January 10, 2014 at 11:04 AM

PATERSON, NJ - In what has proved to be a very busy week for the city's firefighters, two house fires about three hours apart on Wednesday resulted in a total of 10 city residents being displaced from their homes.

According to Tour Commander Chief William Henderson, the first fire on Wednesday was at 70 Jasper St. The fire began at around 1:28 p.m. in the attic of the one-and-one-half story structure. Although there were no injuries, five residents of the home were displaced.

At 4:46 p.m. the same day, another blaze broke out at 304 Trenton Ave. That fire also began in the attic of a one-and-one-half story frame building. Nobody was injured, but the blaze forced five residents there to also have to relocate.

The day before, when temperatures never topped 10 degrees, city firefighters deal with a four-alarm blaze in the middle of the night at 116 Park Ave., where a two-and-one-half-story unoccupied wood frame building caught fire. An adjacent apartment building that was occupied suffered heavy water damage in the course of the firefighters battling the blaze, and 13 residents of the apartment building were displaced. There were no injuries in the Park Avenue blaze, which remains under investigation.

Later on Tuesday, there was a kitchen fire in the Barnert Medical Arts Complex at 680 Broadway. The fire, which began at 2:22 p.m., was a two-alarmer that was contained to just one room and was extinguished by companies on the scene.

"The fire caused minor disruption to the facility for a few hours," Henderson said, "and patients had to temporarily be moved to the other side of the building, but there were no injuries."
