MONTCLAIR - A large fire damaged a home on South Mountain Avenue in Montclair Tuesday.

The fire broke out on the 200 block just before 12 p.m. Fire departments from West Orange and Newark were called in to assist in fighting the blaze.

The Montclair fire chief tells News 12 New Jersey that the fire started on the third floor of the home and was difficult to fight due to the age of the home, as well as the plaster walls and slate roof.

No injuries were reported.
