Thirteen families -- 51 people in all -- were burned out of their homes in a gas-fed overnight Paterson blaze that injured six firefighters.
Rain poured down as firefighters continued to douse pockets of flame well past dawn Tuesday in the three destroyed homes and damaged another on Summer Street.
The Red Cross said its disaster team provided temporary lodging, food and clothing as needed.
There was no immediate word on a possible cause of the five-alarm fire, which broke out around 1:30 a.m. and quickly spread.
The Passaic County prosecutor's arson unit responded to investigate, given the seriousness of the blaze.
