Steven Fletcher claimed a hat-trick as Hibernian withstood a late fightback from Gretna to secure victory.
The hosts cruised into a 3-0 lead as Colin Nish marked his home debut with the opener before Fletcher hit a double including a superb volley.
Gretna staged a spirited comeback with two goals in the final 10 minutes from Gavin Skelton and Kenny Deuchar.
But keeper Greg Fleming was sent off after upending Nish in the penalty area and Fletcher converted the spot-kick.
With less than a minute on the clock on-loan Everton teenager John Paul Kissock cut inside and struck a fierce 20-yard effort that the Hibs goalkeeper Yves Ma-Kalambay palmed away for a corner.
Gretna were knocking the ball around with no little flair, but their early fire was soon extinguished when the hosts claimed a ninth-minute lead.
Fletcher did well to outmuscle Kyle Naughton on the left.
And his ball across goal allowed January signing Nish, making his home debut, to slide in and net from six yards.
Gretna refused to let their heads drop and the lively Kissock was at the heart of their best moves.
He clipped the top of the netting with an attempted 18th-minute cut-back.
However, much like the first goal, Hibs roared back up the park within seconds and scored a magnificent second.
Zarabi's long ball was not properly headed clear by Barr and the ball fell to Fletcher, who swept a 25-yard looping volley over Greg Fleming.
Fletcher almost grabbed a quick double when he was left unmarked and fired a fierce drive off the underside of the bar.
Fleming came to Gretna's rescue on 37 minutes with a fantastic double save from Filipe Morais and Fletcher.
Gretna returned quickly for the second period and Kissock, again, immediately brought out the best in Ma-Kalambay from the edge of the penalty area.
Skelton then tried his luck from distance but his drive flew over the Hibs keeper's bar as the visitors pressed.
However, Gretna's defensive frailties were soon exposed again when Paatelainen's men put the match beyond doubt as early as the 58th minute.
Morais picked out Fletcher and the youngster beautifully controlled the ball on his chest before sweeping it high past Fleming.
Hibs continued to threaten but Gretna gave themselves a glimmer of hope nine minutes from time when Skelton netted.
Sub Brendan McGill scampered down the right and was given time to cross where he picked out Skelton to sweep home from 10 yards.
McGill gave Hibs another scare before more late drama followed on 88 minutes when the visitors scored again.
Kissock's free-kick landed perfectly at the head of Deuchar and he easily nodded home unopposed.
However, just when Gretna sensed a remarkable comeback, Hibs sealed the points.
The on-rushing Nish was felled by Fleming and referee Iain Brines awarded a penalty as well as handing the keeper a straight red card.
Deuchar took his jersey but was powerless to prevent Fletcher completing his hat-trick from the spot.

Dundee United and Hibs played out a fourth successive draw after an entertaining match at Tannadice.
United striker Noel Hunt claimed his 15th goal of season when he tucked in a 12th minute penalty.
A blunder from keeper Lukasz Zaluska allowed John Rankin's strike from 20 yards to bounce in for the equaliser.
Hunt and Hibs' Steven Fletcher both hit the woodwork in the second half, while visiting midfielder Dean Shiels missed the target from 10 yards late on.
With towering skipper Rob Jones missing through injury, Hibs were nervous defending from set-pieces.
And United's direct style of play caused problems throughout a pulsating 90 minutes.
Hibs were under pressure from an early corner, with Jim O'Brien slashing a shot wide from 16 yards.
The Easter Road side also had a good chance inside the first few minutes but Filipe Morais made a mess of a header from 10 yards, following a great delivery from Rankin.
Hunt was guilty of a close range miss as the Hibs defence were caught out by a monster long throw-in from Danny Grainger and Willo Flood also squandered a headed chance inside the six yard box.
A quick break from Hibs saw Colin Nish steal in behind the home defence and the sprawling Zaluska did well to block as Shiels ran on to the new striker's back-heel.
The ball broke across the gaping goal to Fletcher but the forward's touch was clumsy and United had to time to crowd him out.
The visitors were punished for Fletcher's profligacy when Craig Levein's team dashed up the park to set up the opening goal.
Hunt set up O'Brien for a powerful angled shot that was beaten away by Yves Ma-Kalambay and Flood had his heels clipped by Guillaume Beuzelin as he got his head to the rebound.
Contact looked minimal and accidental but a penalty was given and Hunt's tame effort from the spot found the net despite Ma-Kalambay getting a hand to it.
A neat interchange of first time passes opened up the United defence but Shiels got himself in a tangle with a step-over and Zaluska smothered the danger.
Having struggled for much of the first 45 minutes, Hibs found themselves level just 20 seconds after the restart when Zaluska allowed a speculative shot from Rankin to bounce over his outstretched arms.
Grainger brushed the roof of the net with a swerving free kick before United introduced Mark de Vries from the bench.
The substitute striker added even more height to the home ranks and did well to nod down for Hunt, who grazed the crossbar with his close range twisting header.
Fletcher had endured a frustrating game, not seeing much of the ball and unsure of his touch when it did come his way, but the Hibs man produced a great bit of skill to hit the base of the post with an overhead kick from 20 yards.
Ma-Kalambay did well to tip over a strong de Vries header and the visiting keeper got down smartly to gather another header from Hunt as United continued their aerial assault.
The Belgian U21 international then pushed away a Conway drive before Hibs finished strongly.
Zaluska made a fine reaction save to keep out a prod from Nish and Shiels was guilty of a shocking miss when he skewed wide with the goal at his mercy
