Elizabeth Warehouse Fire Contained, But Still Burning
Officials say a huge fire that broke out inside an Elizabeth warehouse has finally been contained. But the blaze will likely keep burning for at least a few more days.
Dozens of firefighters have been battling the blaze since it broke out Wednesday afternoon. But safety concerns about the building’s stability have kept them from fully attacking the fire, though the warehouse isn’t expected to collapse.
Authorities aren’t sure what sparked the blaze, though it’s believed that it started with a car fire inside a body shop in the warehouse. And while it’s now unlikely the fire will spread further, it’s not clear what items may still be burning
No injuries have been reported. Crews remained on the scene Sunday to monitor the blaze.
