A man killed in a Paterson house fire Tuesday afternoon was identified Friday as longtime city resident Charles Bennett, 83.

Responders found Bennett unresponsive in the basement, where the fire in the two-family home on 17th Avenue broke out.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

Authorities were still investigating the cause of the two-alarm blaze, which broke out around 2:30 p.m. and severely damaged the three-story, wood-frame house.

Firefighters had it knocked down within an hour. Five people were displaced.

Funeral arrangements for Bennett hadn't yet been made public on Friday.
