On Tuesday, December 20th 2011 the Paterson NJ Fire Department responded to 20 North Straight St on multiple calls reporting a fire. Battalion 3 reported heavy smoke in the area enroute and then fire out several windows on arrival. EMS and Medics were requested on a rush for a female burn victim found in front of the fire building. A 2nd alarm was requested as fire quickly extended to an attached similar exposure. With heavy fire consuming the rear of the building and venting through the roof, a 3rd alarm was requested. No rear access made suppression difficult. Later in the fire, the original fire building sustained a collapse which aided efforts. One firefighter was injured.
