UPDATE: A firefighter sustained a minor injury during a blaze that ripped through a multi-family, mixed-use Garfield building late Friday into Saturday.

The fire broke out shortly before 11:30 p.m. on the second floor of the three-story Maple Avenue building, which houses the Sud's City laundry on Palisade Avenue. 

It quickly blew through the attic and roof, collapsing a rear portion of the building collapsed soon after.

Utility wires briefly caught fire in the stubborn blaze, which was finally brought under control at 1:49 a.m.
