Fire breaks out at catering hall featured on 'Real Housewives'

PATERSON - A fire broke out tonight at The Brownstone catering hall in Paterson. The catering hall has been featured on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and is co-owned by Albert Manzo, who is featured on the show.

Manzo's wife, Caroline, is one of the main cast members on the show. The other co-owner, Albert's brother Tommy, is married to a former cast member, Dina Manzo. The Paterson Fire Department says the fire started in the kitchen ducts and then tore through the roof.

Investigators say that everyone was evacuated from the building. No injuries were reported, but paramedics were on standby in case people experienced heat exhaustion from the fire and outside temperatures.

Authorities say that political dinners were being held at The Brownstone tonight because of the primaries.
