Firefighters are on the scene of a massive multi-alarm fire that’s gutting several buildings in a section of Paterson at this time.
According to fire officials, firefighters raced to the 80’s block of Beech Street after receiving reports of a fire inside a home shortly before 8:45 p.m.
Upon arrival, crews observed intense flames coming from the second floor of a house that began to spread to neighboring buildings.
