On Thursday, February 6th 2014 the Paterson NJ Fire Department responded to 148 Walnut St for a reported fire. First arriving Engine 2 quickly called a 2nd alarm on arrival for heavy fire venting from a 2sty 20x60 dwelling impinging onto a 3 story exposure. Most of the companies assigned to this fire were relocation companies covering the city due to a 5th alarm fire from the night before. Crews quickly stretched hand lines into the building to darken fire. As 2nd alarm companies arrived, additional water was brought in and searches were conducted. With radiant damage to the exposure building only, companies were able to contain the fire in a short amount of time. There were no reported injuries.
