PATERSON, NJ - First due firefighters were able to remove an occupant of a one-and-a-half-story frame dwelling as flames consumed the rear of the structure on October 16th.

A dark column of smoke was visible as Paterson units responded to 218 E. 22nd Street. Heavy fire was venting from a second-floor rear porch and extending to the roof and dropping down to the first-floor. Three lines were stretched as members made the search and found the resident. The flames were quickly extinguished and extensive overhaul was commenced. One firefighter was transported with non-life-threatening injuries.
