On Saturday, July 28th 2012 the Paterson NJ Fire Department responded to Van Houten St near Carrol St for a reported fire. First arriving companies found a fully involved boarded up vacant 2.5sty 40x60 dwelling. Crews quickly went to exterior attacks and started knocking down fire before 2nd alarm companies could arrive with additional water. Crews continued exterior operations due to deteriorated structural stability. Several firefighters were rehabbed and 1 firefighter was transported to St. Joe's with minor injuries.
