A fire broke out in a New Jersey warehouse complex early Wednesday morning, growing into an inferno that forced residents from their homes in North Brunswick Township.
Firefighters had mostly controlled the blaze by mid-morning, but the concern now moves to air quality, as plastics, chemicals and tires burned.
The consumed warehouse was home to eight businesses including DCH Collision Center and a plastics chemical company.
A former employee told PIX11 News that the complex housed piles of tires and vehicle parts. Smoke from the blaze could be seen from Midtown Manhattan, some 35 miles away.
There are no reports on casualties at the moment, but the complex will be allowed to burn to the ground.
