By Norwood NewsFirefighters are continuing to monitor a fire that broke out this afternoon at the historic Loew’s Paradise Theater on the Grand Concourse. While the blaze is mostly under control, fire officials say they want to make sure it isn’t still roaming inside the theater’s walls. A daycare center located on the theater’s second floor was evacuated. At least one emergency medical technician suffered an injury during the investigation. Aixa Cruz, a worker from the daycare center, said she thought the fire started above the daycare center near a heater. Fire officials say they believe it might have been an electrical fire.
