The West Paterson Fire Department responded to the Borough's first working structure fire of 2011.
In the early morning hours of Monday, January 17th, firefighters responded to a report of a garage fire at 83 Lackawanna Avenue.
Upon arrival they encountered a smoke condition in the area. After gaining entry to the structure, they discovered a vehicle on fire within the single story garage and quickly knocked down the fire.
Mutual aid was received from the Township of Little Falls for a Truck Company, since Truck 2 was out of service for mechanical problems.
