Thanks to Jessica Delfino for this photo from 1 Catherine St. (that’s between East Broadway and Division Street).
The fire department this morning responded to a basement blaze in a tenement building here. It was quickly contained, although one firefighter suffered smoke inhalation.
Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
