Sylvette's Store, located at Main Street and Broadway in Paterson, was the scene of a general alarm fire and collapse on March 11, 1972.

Box 451, the same alarm signal transmitted for the Great Fire of 1902, rang in at 3 p.m.

A pumper was damaged by a falling wall.


Sylvette's, which sold ladies coats and dresses, was owned and operated by Al and Julius Gladstone
.

The store was located next to the old Rivoli Theater, which opened in 1923, and was converted into shops.
