PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Dozens of firefighters battled a stubborn blaze in northern New Jersey that gutted two buildings.

No injuries were reported in the fire, which apparently broke out around 5 a.m. Wednesday on Rosa Parks Boulevard in Paterson. But The Record (https://bit.ly/1td5271) reports that nine people, including a child, were displaced by the blaze.

It’s not yet known what sparked the fire, which took about six hours to extinguish. It apparently started at 217 Rosa Parks Boulevard and spread to 215, though it wasn’t clear which building the displaced people lived in.

The fire remains under investigation by Paterson police and the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
