PATERSON - It's the end of an era for firefighters in one Paterson fire company that said goodbye to their old firehouse yesterday.

Crews with Engine Company 7 moved out of their 100-year-old firehouse on the corner of Grand and Quinn streets. The building has been renovated and fixed over the years, but the floor is now reportedly unstable and not able to support the weight of firetrucks.

Firefighters have temporarily relocated to another firehouse until a new one can be built.
