PATERSON, NJ – At least five homes caught on fire Saturday night, displacing multiple families, according to NBC New York.
Windy weather and record-cold temperatures caused the fire to spread quickly, making the firefighting efforts more difficult. Emergency services from multiple towns came to the scene to work together for the seven-alarm fire.
The fire began around 8:30 p.m. Saturday on Beech Street in Paterson.
At least 45 people from the multi-family homes have been displaced due to the fire.
