PATERSON, NJ - On October 23rd, Paterson companies responded to 298 Getty Ave. for reported smoke. Fire within a one-story garage containing a large dumpster was confirmed. An attached two-story structure was a serious concern. Lines were stretched and both buildings were opened up. Visible fire was knocked down quickly, but smoke was issuing from the two-story dwelling. Extensive overhaul and checking for extension followed. A second-alarm for manpower was called for. The smoke condition began to lighten and the fire was placed under control.
