PASSAIC, N.J. – Residents were evacuated after a massive fire broke out inside a commercial building in Passaic early Wednesday, fire officials said.

It happened on 92 1st St.

Passaic mayor Hector Lora via Facebook advised residents from 83 to 93 Market St. to go seek shelter at city hall.

Electricity was turned off from Bergen Street until South Street as firefighters battled the fire. Residents from the area may also see discolored water or experience low pressure due to the water being used fire hydrants.

No word on serious injuries.

Red Cross helped 39 people with emergency assistance, including temporary lodging in Wednesday's overnight fire.
