PATERSON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – At least one family has been displaced after a fire tore through a multi-family home in Paterson.

The fire broke out around 1 a.m. Tuesday on Park Avenue.

Firefighters had to battle the bitter cold in addition to the flames.

“The weather was a considerable factor — high winds and cold temperatures had taken a toll on the equipment as well as the men fighting the fire,” said Deputy Fire Chief Richard Hoedemaker.

No injuries were reported

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
