Roof Rips Off Morris County Bed, Bath & Beyond

Part of a roof has blown off a Bed, Bath & Beyond store in Mount Olive.

ABC 7 reports that the incident, which happened around 8:30  a.m. ruptured a fuel line causing a small fire. The store’s heating and air conditioning were shut off, as was the gas meter.

Fire companies from Budd Lake and Flanders responded to a call for smoke according to the Daily Record.”"Our two fire companies worked quickly together to avert what could have been a major incident,” Budd Lake Fire Chief Robert Sheard told the newspaper.

NBC 4 New York reports that the part that flew off was similar to a sealant. Mayor Rob Greenbaum told the Daily Record that once the cover is fixed the store can reopen.

The store is located in the International Trade Center just off Route 206 on International Drive. The store is closed today and cannot reopen until the gas line is repaired according to ABC 7.

Nearby stores include Walmart, Lowes and Michael’s.
