PATERSON, N.J. -- Paterson firefighters battled wind-swept flames that blew through 2½-story home on Wednesday.

Flames were shooting out upper windows of the wood-frame Pacific Street building before engulfing the back of the multi-story home on its way through, Mayor Jose "Joey" Torres said.

The condition of a firefighter who fell through a floor during the two-alarm blaze couldn't be determined.
